Lower Yellowstone Falls in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming
To witness the “yellow” of these Yellowstone waterfalls, plan your excursion for the late afternoon when the sun bathes the canyon in color. Travelers have three options, hiking-wise: the brink of the Lower Falls (North Rim), Uncle Tom’s Trail (South Rim), and Artist Point (South Rim, wheelchair accessible). For a guided experience, try the Wildlife Expeditions of Teton Science Schools, which hosts a Wildlife and Waterfalls Tour of the park. Fun Fact: Painter Thomas Moran’s “The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone” depicts the Lower Falls and was the first colored depiction of the area, and it was a factor in persuading Congress to designate Yellowstone as the country’s first National Park.
