“Takakkaw” is derived from a Cree word meaning “it is wonderful” and/or “magnificent”. That it is. And rather loud.

The falls have a total height of 373 metres (1,224 ft), making it the 2nd tallest waterfall in Canada. The waterfall was formerly thought to be the tallest in Canada, but a new survey in 1985 found that it is actually shorter than Della Falls on Vancouver Island.

Enjoy a relaxing Sunday!

Looking across the brink of the Upper Falls of the Yellowstone at the viewing platform and fellow tourists.
I liked a different perspective of the falls.

A few more pics of the falls in comments.

Many thanks for your comments, faves and suggestions!

Have a wonderful weekend!

An iconic view of the Lower Falls of the Yellowstone river seen from the Lookout Viewpoint.

This is the spot where Thomas Moran painted the Lower Falls to inspire Congress in 1872. The painting played a crucial role in convincing the Congress make Yellowstone the first national park. He allegedly wept over the lack of colors in his palette to accurately portray all the hues and tones he experienced and tried to show.

The Red Rock viewpoint is below. An adjacent 0.5-mile trail drops 500 ft to Red Rock for even closer views – the average age of the crowd plummets with the elevation (it’s hard on the knees). The trail was closed to maintenance when I was here this trip. Hope it's open on my next trip, as it's the only viewpoint I've not enjoyed.

Friday is here. Have a fabulous day and weekend ahead.

The view looking downstream as the Palouse river heads for Washington state's official waterfall, Palouse Falls. Taken in the autumn so the flow is nice and low. Really roars in the spring.

Not very high, but an impressive wide waterfall. Taken in the autumn so the flow is nice and low. Really roars in the spring.

More views of this falls and The falls in comments.

Thanks for taking a look. Always appreciated!
