Upper Yellowstone Falls

Wyoming, WY, United States
20 Kudos
One of my favorite hikes in all of Yellowstone was when we went to see the Upper Yellowstone Falls and the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. If you're seen it, you understand how absolutely breathtaking it is, but that's not why I remember it so fondly.

On our way to the falls, we were walking on a narrow path through the woods when we rounded a bend and saw to bison lumbering towards us down the trail. We quickly scrambled into the forest with another random couple about thirty feet to get out of their path. It was pretty hilarious as the four of us made our way as quietly as we could and we were surely startled when one of them stopped, turned his head, and snorted towards us. After they walked on, we continued on with our hike safely!
