Gibbon Falls

Another one of the waterfalls located in Yellowstone National Park is Gibbon Falls. Gibbon Falls is one of the most visited falls in Yellowstone because it is located right off of the southern Grand Loop Road, between Norris and Madison Junction.
Discovered in 1872 by members of the second Hayden survey group, the Gibbon Falls is located where the Gibbon River plunges 84 feet off of the northern escarpment down into the Yellowstone Caldera.

REally nice to see some falls we missed on our trip, the road was under construction so we decided to skip that part of the park. Beautiful shots.

Water is an Earth element that helps me refocus my attention from the day's thoughts & worries to something that is a real blessing. Waterfalls are the best at this! ~Maria

How did you get these photos --- with all the construction this year, and unable to park and walk down to see it closer?
How did you capture these shots?
