We enjoyed the Yellowstone River throughout our visit to Yellowstone including the end of our visit. Our last night was spent in West Yellowstone. We found the flowing blue waters to be most peaceful throughout. We were happy to enjoy riding by this river each day as we came and went from the Yellowstone National Park North Entrance. We stayed... More

We have seen the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone in both summer and winter. The Yellowstone river runs through it. The canyon is beautiful in either season but I have to say that being there when the canyon was full of snow and not any other people around was a lifetime highlight.

One of the top iconic rivers of the world and when you see it on the tv you are just mesmerised by its apparent beauty. To see it in reality just confirms how marvellous and beautiful this river is, surrounded by the magnificence that is the Yellowstone National Park. Throughout the Park there are numerous Viewpoints from which to see... More

Be sure to have your cameras posed because there was a treat around every corner. We spent 4 days traversing the entire park and took every turnout. This is a national treasure not to be missed.

What an incredible river! Moves quickly and many rapids yet many pools. Breathtaking is not enough to describe it but it did cause my husband and I to exclaim with exuberance, "God is so good".

I have to say that the big wild blue yonder of this place is very fitting. It does not even fit into the pictures and your memory is about the only way to really show it as vivid as it really it.

It is easy to forget that we have a national treasure in Yellowstone and that it is still a wilderness area. The Yellowstone River winds through it with the dramatic Upper and Lower Falls and Artist's Point. Even if it has been years since you visited Yellowstone, do it again to waken your senses to ponderosa pines, rock, geysers, wildlife,... More

This is a beautiful view, with lots of wild life visible on the ride. Both the river and especially the lower falls were beautiful, framed in a recent snowfall.
