Photograph - Photograph
Yellowstone National Park is the oldest National Park in the United States and the world. Established by the US Congress and signed into law by President Ulysses S. Grant on March 1st, 1872.
The parks main body is in the state of Wyoming but also stretches into Montana and Idaho.
Yellowstone Park is known for it�s geothermal features and the wildlife that roams through the park. The most famous of the geothermal features is Old Faithful.
Many animals freely roam the park, the most commonly seen animal in the park is the American Bison, otherwise known as the buffalo. We spent one week in the park and saw many different animals including , buffalo, elk, prong horns, deer, bear and Bald Eagles.
North of Yellowstone Lake by roughly 20 miles is the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. The Yellowstone River drops into the canyon with two large waterfalls generally known as the upper falls and the lower falls. In this image you see a photograph of the lower falls as they make the final drop into the canyon. The lower falls drop 308 feet into the canyon below. The lower falls of the Yellowstone river is the largest volume waterfall in the Rocky Mountains. The falls carry up to 63, 000 gallons of water per minute during the peak spring run off. Towards the end of fall this volume drops off to 5,000 gallons per minute. The canyon itself ranges from 800 to 1200 feet deep and between 1/4 and 3/4 of a mile wide.
