A lovely waterfall AND a beautiful canyon. The name, Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, is a bit of a misnomer. Yes, it is grand in its own way, but please don't imagine the Arizona variety. The subtle colors, cause by oxidizing iron, are because of hydrothermal alteration (it was a geyser basin, back in the day), so the geologically forces,... More

This guy I met at Biscuit Basin, he said make sure when you do the canyon are to go to Artist Point it has the best view of the canyon. Yep -- it does! AND plenty of parking at least for September visit and one bathroom.

This is one of the many beautiful stops at YNP! There were a lot of people there when we were there but there is enough viewing area for everyone. I would go early or late in the day June, July, August.

A view like this at any other National Park requires a strenuous hike and days of planning. Yes, you can drove to the look out and the mostly level walk is easy for all ages and abilities. The view of the falls is awesome and the river valley below displays the mighty power of water flowing for ages.

We stopped here and were blown away with the beauty of this spot . Amazing colours , scenery . Quite a few buses in the park, so every stop was crowded , but that did not take away from the beauty of the park or this fabulous stop .

The best view to get a sense of the Grand Canyon without making an effort. Back then before photography became common, this vantage point used to be the favor setting among artists. They made long and costly journey to be here for sculpting this view so the rest can have a glimpse of the reality of this place. Nowadays it... More

It rained the day we went but didn't diminish from the beautiful site! I have never seen anything more beautiful! Just cant image what the pioneers thought when they saw it! The day was fabulous the rain cleared up and the sky was a brilliant blue and big puffy white clouds!

This is a must visit in Yellowstone. One of the best views in any national park. Lots of parking and just a short paved walk to the viewpoint. Bring your camera for sure. This whole canyon is one of a kind.
