We spent most of the morning of 23 September driving from West Yellowstone to the shores of Yellowstone Lake. Erika’s sister and her husband were excited about showing us the Great Gray Owl they found the day before. We did not have time for geysers and paint pots. But we did stop at the Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River.
The National Park Service writes “the caynon was a barrier to early travel.” Indeed, the falls do not look like good news for the canoeist going in either direction. At 308 feet, the falls are twice the size of Niagara. Obviously, however, the Niagara sports more gallons per second.
