Lower falls of the Yellowstone
Tower Falls - Tower Creek drops 132 feet to join the Yellowstone River, just a few miles west of Canyon. Note the towers (rhyolite) at the top of the falls. There's a nice trail to the bottom of the falls.
Lower falls from Artist Point- the highest waterfall in the Park at 308 feet. The Yellowstone River enters the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. It was a gloomy day with a lot of mist in the air from the rains.
Gibbons Falls, between Madison Junction and Norris Geyser Basin on the west side of the Park. The Gibbons River drops 84 feet over the side of the caldera on its way to join the Firehole River and become the Madison River.
The Upper falls of the yellowstone, just a short distance from Lower Falls. If you look closely, you can see an observation platform right at the brink of the falls, allowing you to look down the 109 foot drop.
