Our Ladies at Artist Point, Yellowstone

Waterfalls are fascinating to me. They possess so much beauty, power, and danger. This one at Yellowstone was so beautifully captured on a canvas of Thomas Moran in 1871 that the United States government decided to make this a national park to preserve it. I have tried to capture the artist’s view and added my own beauty by placing the ladies of our family in front of it.


One of the “must do” at Yellowstone is to hike down Uncle Tom’s Trail to see the rainbow that is produced by the sun reflecting off the mist created by the Lower Falls. It is an amazing sight! But you must be warned, it is not for faint of heart. The 328 steps that lead down to the point where you can get a breath-taking view of the Lower Falls is easy. Climbing those 328 steps can be dangerous. Make sure to take it slowly. It is well worth the pain! 🙂
