Yellowstone Falls

Lower Falls of The Grand Canyon Of Yellowstone

One of the beautiful sights in Yellowstone National Park, the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. This is the lower falls. Lower Yellowstone Falls is the largest volume waterfall in the Rocky Mountains of the United States. These falls are 308 feet (94 m) high, or nearly twice as high as Niagara Falls. To give you a sense of scale, in the bottom left corner of this shot is a small viewing area with a person standing there. On the right-hand side of the brink of the falls is another viewing area with about 20 or so people viewing the falls.

A traditional burial site, to the Snoqualmie people, the falls are “the place where First Woman and First Man were created by Moon the Transformer” and “where prayers were carried up to the Creator by great mists that rise from the powerful flow. The mists rising from the base of the waterfall are said to serve to connect Heaven and Earth.-Wiki
