Summer Vacation Part 5


After we left Old Faithful, we continued on to drive past Yellowstone Lake (above) which is the largest high elevation lake in North America. Then we headed on to the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. On the way we got to see an elk on the side of the rode (below), can you see his head and rack in the tall grass?


 The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone is where the Yellowstone River roars through 20 miles of canyon with two major waterfalls. We were only able to see the Lower falls as there was no place to park at the Upper falls. One thing about a park as popular as Yellowstone, is that you want to head to popular places as early as possible, before the crowds hit. That was why we went to Old Faithful first that day. So by the time we got to the falls, it was afternoon and everything was very packed,


We all took a trail to an overlook, and it was a breathtaking walk. Lower falls is 308ft. high!










Next time I will take you to the Teton Mountains and the town of Jackson WY. To see the other parts of my vacation: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4. Hope you're not tired of seeing vacation photos. Bye for now!
