19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The Yellowstone River Flowing through the Yellowstone Grand Canyon

The image was taken at the Yellow Stone National Park's Grand Canyon. While hiking the trail to the bottom of the canyon, I was extremely exhausted from the walk. The last thing on my mind was capturing the beauty of the never-ending river and the canyon that was carved. However at exactly the trail's midpoint, the trail lent itself to a breath-taking view of the canyon. The photo displays the Yellowstone Grand Canyon and the Yellowstone River from the lower falls look out point.
