Waterfalls of the USA — Yellowstone National Park

Everyone loves waterfalls! They seem to capture the fancy of adults and children with their noisy tranquility and grace. They are attractions wherever they exist and beckon to travelers that they must be seen to be believed. Some are delicate, some are thunderous; some form a wispy thread of water, some are wide; some descend in small cascades, some just tumble to the depths. The Waterfalls of the USA are a motley lot and can be found throughout the country.

Yellowstone has several interesting waterfalls, all accessible through the park’s trail system.

Lower Yellowstone Falls — The premier cascade of this glorious national park can be appreciated from overlooks along the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone.
