Brink of the Upper Falls
The series of photos below were taken at the Brink of the Upper Falls of the Yellowstone River. Note the rainbow in the bottom right photo. We were there at the right time of the day and saw the right angle to capture it. It was like icing on the cake!

Rivers and Creeks and Cascades, Oh My
Much like Yosemite, Yellowstone is plentiful with water in many forms, i.e., lakes, creeks, rivers, waterfalls, and cascades, all adding to the natural beauty of the area. I must admit that almost any form of water is one of my favorite photographic subjects, so I was very delighted!

The photo below left shows the Lower Falls with a 308' drop, and the Yellowstone River as it snakes through the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River.

The photo below right is looking at the canyon in the other direction. Both photos were taken from Artist Point, a lovely area from which to observe the beauty, take pictures, relax under a tree, or just be.

Tower Falls
These falls are located in the Tower-Roosevelt area on the northeast end of the park. Surrounded by eroded volcanic pinnacles, the falls drop 132' from Tower Creek.

On the opposite side of the bridge from the falls viewing area is the beautiful Tower Falls Cascade. The photo below right is representative of it, although I took several more from different angles and some with close-ups of the swirling water.
