Beautiful area of the park. Stop and see the falls and many geothermal features also in this area. Close proximity to paint pots and geysers, including Old Faithful.

Much larger looking in real life than photos can capture. The rivers really flow in the first part of June. Geysers at the base of the falls remind one of the geologically active nature of all Yellowstone. There are many other waterfalls in this region...More
