Yellowstone's Grand Canyon is one of the most iconic sites in the region, providing several stunning vistas as you go along.
This almost 40 km long canyon is a large and the most famous canyon in Yellowstone. It is hugely popular among visitors due to it's scenic views of the Lower and Upper falls, as well as the fascinating pink and yellow coloured rocks. There are several view points and points of interest along the length of the canyon. The canyon's beautiful shades of colours are an iconic part of Yellowstone. The mineral stains due to the activities of water have given the rocks of the canyon such a pleasant tint of colours, it is truly a sight to behold. The geology of the canyon is not completely clear. It was created due to erosion over hundreds of thousands of years, and the geothermal nature of the area is still prevalent, which can be seen by the hot springs throughout the canyon.
