Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. When you see it with your own eyes, you will understand why this park is called Yellowstone. It's according to this canyon, which is colored yellow with this 90-meter waterfall. The ancient Indians of the Hidatsa tribe and the Mandans named this place Mi tsi a da zi – which is a translation of the Rock Yellow River. Subsequently, American trappers named it Yellow Stone. It is really an extremely photogenic place.

In addition to the Yellow Rocks, this place consists of two waterfalls, such as the Upper Waterfall, is smaller and near it is the Lower Waterfall, which is one of the icons of Yellowstone. It is possible to get to the Upper Waterfall to its edge and watch how beautiful it hums.
