Worth the side trip. Was a nice surprise. A little crowded hard to park but certainly another awesome adventure view

I feel sorry for the people that drive the south rim road. The views and experiences from the trail are not to be missed, and the crowds are quite a bit thinner than at the overlooks.

This was one of favorite drives. There are lotas of photo ops. Lots of wildlife. Traffic wasn't too bad. Try this road VERY early in the AM and you may well catch bears and the occasional wolf on its edges, unlike hayden valley where you need a spotting scope.

Here is where you get the best views of the upper falls and the grand canyon the Yellowstone. Doesn't take long to do, but really worth the trip.
