Travel – Yellowstone Adventure Part 4: Waterfalls

Lower Yellowstone Falls, the biggest waterfall in Yellowstone is a 308′ drop located in the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. At roughly 9:30 to 10:00 am DMT the Sun Creates a Rainbow Effect At The Bottom.

There are nearly 300 waterfalls in Yellowstone National Park, 60 of which are listed. You could easily set aside one or two days in the park to visit only waterfalls. However, while we do love waterfalls, we only stopped to look at the ones that were easily accessible from the main loops in the park.

To be more precise, we only stopped to see the waterfalls that happened to be on the way to and from good wildlife sections of the park and the thermal features that we hoped to see. Here are the water falls that Beth and I photographed and videoed during our stays in June 2021 and July 2020.

The only exception to this statement was the Lower Yellowstone Falls. Mike from Yellowstone Wonders made sure that he got us to the Lower Falls lookout in time to see the sun turn the white spray at the bottom of the 308′ drop into a beautiful rainbow of ROYGBV colors right around 10:00 am Daylight Mountain Time.
