Been here several times some years ago and nothing has changed, still got the steam pouring out of the white rocky area on the far left.

This is one of the most beautiful views in the entire park. If Uncle Tom's trail steps are open, you can walk down into area. In early June, the steps were still closed because of possible ice.

Beautiful Park and a must see. Give yourself at least 3 day to see the whole park. Loved the prismatic geyser and all the bison walking around on he side of the road!!!

A beautiful spot. I am handicapped and could not walk to see entire vistas. The National Park System does a beautiful job but yellowstone could do a much better job at making park accessible without taking away with its beauty. Simple handrails along paths would really help. Thank you

The stunning views from trails along the top of the canyon are spectacular any time of the year. If you are in relatively good shape, you can hike down and up the steps of Uncle Tom's Trail to look up at the Lower Falls thundering waterfall, or on the north side of the canyon, wind down and up the switchbacks...

Beautiful in the Northern section of the park as we crossed it several times looking for Otters. But it's even better in the grand canyon. We chartered a snow coach for wildlife photography and when it got slow we traveled over to the canyon. You can't miss this attraction!
