Canyon Lands, Yellowstone

September 26, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

The Canyon Lands and waterfalls in the morning are beautiful with long shadows over the rocks.  There are many interesting rock formations in this area and deep canyons.  Artist Point had a stunning view which included the falls and the river.  We left the falls area and headed north to drive to the top of Mount Washburn.  It is 10,243 feet and a wonderful place to see the vastness of this park. This park was established in 1872 and spans over 3468 square miles (2,219,791 acres).  We drive for hours each day and rarely cover a small portion of this park.  We headed out to Lamar Valley and stopped for awhile to watch a coyote hunt in the tall grasses while we ate our lunch.  We returned back to the RV early and relaxed this afternoon.
