"Lower Yellowstone Falls is one of the grandest symbols of the American West and has been captured by some of the greatest painters in American history such as Albert Bierstadt and Thomas Moran. Moran’s paintings of Yellowstone Falls, after his exploration west in 1871, were so emotionally captivating that they helped persuade Congress to establish the world’s first national park, saving a piece of America forever.
When the water drops from the Lower Yellowstone Falls, it plunges 308 feet before crashing into the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, nearly twice as high as Niagara Falls. Standing on the rim of the canyon, gazing into the falls, is like staring into the heart of America’s wilderness." - John Banovich, Artist/ Conservationist
Waterfalls have the ability to mesmerize even the least-sentimental among us. In a place like Yellowstone, they can only be grand. The combination of a 600,000-year-old volcano and its lava, glacial movements and erosion's forces sculpted the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. Some masterpieces cannot be created in a day. As the most famous site in the park, many artists, including Thomas Moran, have painted the lower falls. I am humbled to add my own.
