Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone

These photos contain views of one of Yellowstone's most breathtaking sights, the powerful Yellowstone River as it roars through the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone.  Be sure to read the details on the sign as they explain the colorful sections of the canyon and more.  There are two major waterfalls, Upper and Lower Falls, and the latter is part of the spectacular vista in the third photo.  And, in case you were curious, the river starts in Younts Peak (in the Absaroka Mountains,) south of the park, and flows over 600 miles to North Dakota where it eventually empties into the Missouri River.
