Waterfalls in Wyoming
Wyoming Waterfalls dot this legendary state that’s home to both Yellowstone National Park (the world’s first; though technically it’s also got strips of Montana as well as Idaho) as well as Grand Tetons National Park. This state balances dude ranches with skiing along with some of the most spectacular Nature that the Nation has to offer. It’s also the only state where the Antiquities Act no longer applies.
Of course just about all of our waterfalling excursions in this state pretty much involved the two flagship national parks – Yellowstone and Grand Tetons. Yellowstone Waterfalls are merely a side attraction in a place where variety reigns supreme. Featuring geysers, colorful pools, heaps of wildlife, and a Grand Canyon of its own, you’ll understand why the region became America’s first National Park (and quite possibly the world’s first).
I tend to think of this park as the American Safari because you’ll find yourself in a landscape where its residents (e.g. bison, elk, wolves, bears, moose, etc.) are as much a part of the park experience as its photogenic geological features. Some of these organisms (especially bears) have gained such celebrity status that traffic jams occur when they’re spotted. In a way, us park visitors now play the role of the paparazzi. 😉
While it’s easy to become a wildlife fan, a geyser hunter, or a thermal pool collector (pretty much signature attractions of Yellowstone National Park), waterfall lovers won’t be disappointed with the array of cataracts and cascades that exist in the state. We hope to see more of this state in the near future for a chance at seeing more of the state’s waterfalls (especially outside the National Parks).
