THis was great but the sounds were better

This is a great place to stop off at, and take some time to look around, remember the sounds are great just sit for a minute or two

Partially frozen, these falls mesmerizes the onlooker. The view in January with the ice and snow around dazzle the senses.

Breathtaking views!!! Absolutely love the beauty of Yellowstone and the diverse terrain! Small hike, different levels for those that want more/ weather permitting. I've been in all seasons, may/ June is best.

There's a lot to see in Yellowstone beyond Old Faithful, and many bison and thermal areas. Not to diminish the satisfaction that those popular features provide, there's much more to Yellowstone. The Lower Falls of The Yellowstone River is at the top of that list as well as the Grand Canyon of The Yellowstone (immediately downstream from the falls), any... More

We chose to descend the stairs to get the view from the base - can't remember how many stairs there were but they were tough on the return with lots of people stopping for a break! The viewing points aren't huge so be prepared to wait in line to look at the view and take photis

This is a must see place and your photo will be great. Good combination visit with the Canyon and very accessible - right in the middle of the "Big 8" on the east side. The problem is the crowds: it's probably 4x number of people than 10 years ago. try to be late or early, or you will not even... More
