So beautiful and an easy walk to get all the good views of the falls. Plenty of parking also. You get to see it from all different angles.

Gibbon Falls is pretty, but is suffers by comparison. Consider all that surrounds it and you can see why I would not put it in the sights you have to see if you just have a couple of days.

While not one of the park's premier attractions, this is one of several "lesser" waterfalls. The short path from the parking lot leads to several vantage points, all with good views.

Yet another beautiful spot along the adventure that is Yellowstone. Not a jaw-dropper by any means, but still worth stretching your legs to admire yet another fantastic view.

This was our first stop in Yellowstone. It was pretty. It's a quick stop, so if you have the time, it's a nice addition to the itinerary.
