Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone

On Sunday we continued our drive through Yellowstone National Park and saw our first herd of bison….


…and some on the side of the road.


After a long day we made it to our final stop at the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone.


We did a short hike to the “Brink of Lower Falls” where we saw the spectacular view pictured at the top of this post.


This waterfall is taken from the opposite end of the canyon.

    Must have passed you on the road! We arrived in Yellowstone September 8th, leaving on the 12th for Jackson, WY.

    We walked down to the base of the falls, and up all million steps!
