Wow, Just Wow. It is breath taking and amazing. It is like a painting on canvas. So worth the climb. It can be a hard climb for anyone with health issues so just be warned. This is a must see/ do when in Yellowstone.

Uncle Tom's Trail is supposed to be very cool but has been closed for construction for the last few years... still closed in July 2017.

To be this close to Lower Falls and go below the level of the waterfall is well worth it. We took lots of pictures, because the attraction is a place that reflects the power of nature and the scale of the West. It reflects the divine nature to me, and it reminded me of the smallness and fragility of human life in the face of nature's ferocity.

On our visit last week to the South Rim, Uncle Tom's Trail was closed for reconstruction. It used to be accessable via the South Rim trail at Artist Point, but that trail is closed as well. There is no indication when it will reopen. You could see the steps on the trail from the brink of the Lower Falls and it looked like it would be a fun 'hike'.

Not for anyone that has respiratory issues or unfit as it is a steep hike down and back. There are some 300 stairs one way. It is perforated steel sheeting. Take your time and step carefully. Worth the effort for an spectacular view!
