The Grand Canyon – of the Yellowstone

Photo of the week

Travel is one of the best teachers. Until this summer, I assumed there was only one “Grand Canyon.”

The Grand Canyon of Yellowstone National Park

There are spectacular views into the river-cut gorge of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, not far from Canyon Village. The V-shape of the canyon defines it as a river-cut canyon. Glacier canyons tend to be U-shaped. There are roads and trails along and into the canyon that would provide days of exploring opportunities–another item for my bucket list.
