The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone

The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone is one of the classic images of the national parks.  One that just says being out west on vacation.

Look at my last post of the Hayden Valley and the realize this is just a few miles down river from that wide expansive view.  Actually the Yellowstone River changes greatly in the park.  The broad expanse of Yellowstone Lake, the running through a narrow forested canyon, opening up to the wide Hayden Valley, back into the woods and suddenly over the falls into the magnificent canyon.

Quite a view.

Of course it was clear again.  However you work with what you have.  I spent about an hour taking it all in and then as the sun was already bright in the sky, headed south.  It was time to get to the Tetons!
