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!

Looking east from near the top of Dunraven Pass at the chasm that is the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone.
A crow kept me company.

The Pass is the highest road in the Park, at 8850 feet.

Some history:
"In 1874, just two years after the park's creation, the Earl of Dunraven, a titled Irish Peer made a visit to Yellowstone in conjunction with a hunting expedition to the Northern Rockies. He was so impressed with the park, that he devoted well over 150 pages to Yellowstone in his The Great Divide book, published in London in 1876. The Great Divide was one of the earliest works to praise and publicize the park.

In 1878 during a U.S. Geological Survey of the park, Henry Gannett, a geographer working with the survey, named a peak just two miles southwest of Mount Washburn in the honor of the Earl of Dunraven and the service his book had done for the park. In 1879, Philetus Norris, the park superintendent gave the pass on the Grand Loop Road between Tower and Canyon the name Dunraven because of its proximity to Dunraven Peak."

Thanks for taking a look. Much appreciated!

Looking north from the lower terrace at old Fort Yellowstone (red roofs) and the more modern concessions district.

"Fort Yellowstone was a U.S. Army fort, established in 1891 at Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone National Park. Yellowstone was designated in 1872 but the Interior Department was unable to effectively manage the park. Administration was transferred to the War Department in August 1886 and General Philip Sheridan sent a company of cavalry to Mammoth Hot Springs to build a cavalry post. The army originally called the post Camp Sheridan in honor of General Sheridan but the name was changed to Fort Yellowstone in 1891 when construction of the permanent fort commenced. The army administered the park until 1918 when it was transferred to the newly created National Park Service. The facilities of Fort Yellowstone now comprise the Yellowstone National Park headquarters, the Horace Albright Visitor Center and staff accommodations." Wiki

Much to fascinate and entertain anyone here, from the amazing geothermal features to the history of the area.

Enjoy a terrific Tuesday!

Looking north as the Yellowstone river flows past Calcite Springs with Bumpus Butte above. A favorite viewpoint on the east side of the park, near Tower Falls.

Enjoy a wonderful Wednesday!
