This was one of my husbands favorite spots we visited. You can park and walk a couple hundred yards to great views and pictures.

The Grand Canyon is Beautiful! Get there in the fall when there are less crowds. The park is great this time of year. Be prepared to walk or hike to some of these view points.

This is a "must see" while you are visiting Yellowstone National park. There are 2 sets of waterfalls that you can hike near to get tremendous views. The canyon is carved deeply into the rock and stretches for miles. There are pinnacles to see as well. One trail leads down to the bottom of the the largest waterfall and another trail takes you along the top of the south side of the canyon. Both trails are easy to moderate and very safe. There is a chance that you may see Grizzly Bears on the South Trail.

This is a beautiful canyon - well worth the visit. The canyon can be seen from a number of angles and has active hydrothermal vents along it which are sometimes visible (especially in colder weather)

We've been to the Grand Canyon, but this view was spectacular. My husband and I drove through all the roads in Yellowstone, except for the closed road due to construction. Since we got married, we've always talked about visiting this park. We are glad we did. What an experience! This First National Park is not to be missed.
