This image was taken in very early morning light, from Artist Point in Yellowstone National Park. The next time I visit Yellowstone, I will visit this location later in the day. On this day, the South Rim and North Rim roads were closed due to snow and ice. A gate blocked the road as I approached the area, and I parked alongside the road. A ranger happened to be in the area, so I asked if I could hike up to Artist's Point, even though the road was closed. He said that I could, but to be careful since he had just seen a large grizzly bear along the road, and fresh wolf tracks. I had some bear spray with me, so I decided to take the hike in the 12 degree weather (although I was not sure the bear spray would work after sitting in my freezing cold car all night). It felt very adventurous, with awesome scenery. I include this photo only as a memory of my hike. Horrible lighting. Artist Point is one of the marquee overlooks on the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River, with an exceptional perspective of canyon’s most famous feature, the 308-foot Lower Falls. It is estimated that between 5,000 and 60,000 gallons of water rush over Lower Falls each second, depending on the season. Looking across the gaping 1,000-foot deep chasm, the north rim of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River is about 3/4 of a mile (as the crow flies) from Artist Point.
