Yellowstone Falls


The happy campers in front of Yellowstone Falls.  The falls drop over 300 feet (91.4m).  The river has carved out an amazing canyon.  In certain light the rocks look yellow, hence the name Yellow Stone.


The intensity and power of the water going over the falls just cannot be shown in a picture. Believe me, I tried!  I took a million pictures but none of them capture the water's energy. When I got home it occurred to me that I could have taken a video with my cell phone.  Maybe next time.






The woman in this picture was very afraid to look over the falls even with a fence in front of her!  You do feel like you could get pulled over by the force but it's safe.


There are so many other scenic places around the world, check here for more at Scenic Sunday.

I have yet to go to Yellowstone, but with every photo I see, the more I want to. I was in Yosemite a few weeks ago...have you been there? The falls there are fairly impressive too.
