The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone

The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River is breathtaking, and it really is made of ‘yellow stone’; but that’s not what sets this ‘must see’ apart. It’s a magnificent canyon with not one but two great waterfalls: The Upper and Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River. The Lower Falls (308 ft/ 94m) is the largest in the Rocky Mountains. The falls and the canyon can be accessed by either the North or South Rim Drive. If pinched for time, the prime view of the canyon and Lower Falls is from Artist Point on the South Rim Drive. If you have the time and physical strength, hike one of the “Brink” trails to stand at the very edge of either the Upper or Lower Falls, an unforgettable experience.
