We saw the river several times on our visit but the most spectacular was at the upper & lower falls and through the Yellowstone Grand Canyon.

Visited while touring Yellowstone Park. Fabulous area. Lots to do and see but try to avoid the crowds. Highlight are the roaming bison and did see a bear. Lots of osprey too.

We were looking forward to the "Rim" hikes but they were closed. We stopped for overlook views but really wanted to hike.

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!!!

Hello! We will be giving the half day rafting tour that starts in Gardiner a try on July 6th this year! At the end of the rafting trip do you provide transportation back to the starting point? Also, does the 3 hours include the driving time back, or what is the total amount of time from the start at 10am to finish when we arrive back at our vehicles, thank you!
