Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone

After leaving Jackson, we drove up through Yellowstone National Park. I’ve never been there before, and it was interesting to see the famous national park – the nation’s first, in fact. Aside from the masses of gawking tourists, what struck me most about Yellowstone was the absolute purity of the landscape – its untouched pristine landscapes teaming with wildlife. But the highlight for me was the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone and its thundering waterfalls.

  1. I really like the photo where sun is illuminating the falls Jack…in my mind, the second photo here has the most impact… glad to see you traveling to new territories…. 🙂

    1. Thanks Rajeev! Yeah the golden light in the mist that morning was pretty awesome. Just moments before I was able to take that photo, there was a strong brocken spectre shining in the mist in the sky just to the right of the falls – you can still see it faintly in the second image. Unfortunately it faded just as I got the camera set up.
