Seems there are a lot of zigzags Mother Nature provides us, and my husband and I were fortunate enough to see this one up close and personal on our recent travels to Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. We were stunned by the incredible colors of this canyon (created by hot water acting on volcanic rock). And as if the canyon’s colors weren’t enough, we were treated to a beautiful rainbow highlighted in the mist from the cascading 308-foot Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River.
Now, to get to the lookout from where I took this photo required a 660-foot descent via winding gravel trails. Not too bad going down, but coming back up? Well, given that we were over 7000 feet above sea level, let’s just say I was huffing and puffing my way to the top. Was the effort worth it? At the time, I wasn’t so sure, but looking back at this photo, I have to say “absolutely”!
