|Upper Falls of the Yellowstone (109 feet)|
In order to see any or all of these 16 posts so far, you can click HERE. The posts will come up with the last one I posted in April coming up first. It was a fantastic trip --and Yellowstone is one of our favorite places that we have EVER visited. AND--this part of Yellowstone---the Canyon area, is a favorite!!!
Going back to September 20, 2012 (which was when all of these photos were taken), we first visited the NORTH RIM (Lookout Point, Red Rock Point, Grand View and Inspiration Point). I have already blogged about all of these...
SO--after some lunch that day, we headed to the SOUTH RIM in order to see Upper Falls, Crystal Falls, to hike down Uncle Tom's Trail to get a close-up view of Lower Falls, and then to Artist Point. Today's post will be about that visit to the South Rim.
The photo above is of Upper Falls --which can be seen from the South Rim. Be sure to click on the photos for enlargements.

They say that between 5000 and 60,000 gallons of water rush over Lower Falls every SECOND, depending upon whether it is the dry or wet season..... Wooooooo!!!!

We were WAY up there at Lookout Point ---and couldn't believe the difference while seeing a waterfall from 3 different locations.

328 steps.... Pant Pant Pant....
As you can see, we took in everything we could on both the North Rim and the South Rim of the Canyon at Yellowstone. If you ever go to Yellowstone and can hike, we recommend Uncle Tom's Trail and also the Red Rock Point Trail... IF you cannot do much hiking, we recommend Lookout Point (Parking is nearby), Inspiration Point, and Artist Point... There are great views of the canyon from all of those areas.
Well--that completes my 3 posts from the Canyon area. BUT--there's still alot more of Yellowstone to see... I'll try to continue sharing our wonderful trip in September of 2012 with you during the next several months (YEARS)... ha
Hope you have a fabulous weekend.
