“Yellowstone River”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

Beautiful! Loved driving the Grand Loop Road along the river. It was so lovely we found it hard not to stop at every pullout to snap yet another photo! When you get to the area with the views of the upper and lower falls, be sure to take both North Rim Drive and South Rim Road. They both have places to stop and photograph the falls and, depending on the time of day, one may give you better photos than the other. There is a book (available on Amazon) titled "Photographing Yellowstone" that has some great tips on where and when to photograph what.

“Mighty River Leads to Mighty Falls”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

The only thing that was negative about this was the government shutdown. Public lands means government control. We did get to see the falls and travel along the Yellowstone River. The snow and cold made it especially nice and a great photo op.

“Motorcycling trip”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

Really enjoyed riding around Yellowstone. It was very busy in August but the traffic flowed very well and we had good access to all the highlights such as Old Faithful.

“A must see”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

stop and check out the lower falls on the way from Cooke City to West Yellowstone. This a great falls to check out in the winter, We did this 5 time when coming out to go snowmobiling in the winter, You have to rent snowmobiles and be in a guided group tour to see this in winter, this time we drove out to do some riding on the ATV's out side the park, but had to come and check out the lower and upper falls on the Yellowstone river, Lot of walking in the summer, more to see, just take your time there are places to sit and take in the sites, So if you are going to check out Yellowstone stop and check out the falls you will like it,
