Nice scenic area with great photo opportunities. The paths provided good access and the waterfall provided a great backdrop.

This was our first stop of our second day in the Park, and we were in the parking lot by 8:30am, early enough that we beat all the large tour buses.

different hues of the nature seem to converge at this point. One must go there if one is visiting Yellowstone. It is vistas like these that inspire great artists though I have no artistic bones in my body.

Artist Point offers an outstanding view of both the canyon and the Lower Falls of the Yellowstone. A camera is a must. The trail to Artist Point has been upgraded and is accessible. The rainbows are outstanding. Bring your tripod and expect large crowds.

This was one of the prettiest places in Yellowstone in my opinion. It was a weekend so it was pretty crowded, but the view was absolutely worth it.

Breathtaking views of the Canyon. But the difference compared to many scenic views such is that in all the photographs seem represented a painting. It seems all fake. To admire. You can walk through the S.Rim trail or directly by car with ample parking.
