“This is a spectacular canyon in the northwest corner of Yellowstone! The meandering river comes around a few bends and takes this fall into the canyon as it heads north. I climbed down the slope to get this low angle on the falls and really liked the way the sunlight hit the fast moving water as it came down and moved around the colorful boulders!
