One of the most photographed sights in Yellowstone National Park, Artist Point offers panoramic views of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone and lower Yellowstone Falls. The spot purportedly got its name because visitors thought it was the point from which Thomas Moran made sketches for his famed painting of the falls in 1872 (it was later determined that the sketches were made from a different spot). From this point you're surrounded by an array of soft pinks, yellows, and oranges that color the rugged façade of the canyon walls. Visit the overlook to see rainbows in the spray of the falls, which are 94 m (308 ft) high. Bring your binoculars for the chance to spot nesting bald eagles, osprey, and swallows along the cliff tops and canyon walls. This attraction is just a short walk from the parking lot and is accessed via a paved path that is wheelchair accessible.

Talk about a painted landscape of mineral cliffs cut by crystal river waters surrounding by Virgin forests. Don't miss it, take the hikes, stay awhile.
Surprisingly, this was my absolute spot in Yellowstone. So this particular area, is comprised of the upper and lower falls along with the Yellowstone Grand Canyon. If you follow the maps/trails you'll end up visiting both the north and south rim at different points on the river. If you are short on time, this is the BEST view. You get to see the falls, the color walls, the whole canyon. It's just simply the best option. DO NOT MISS IT!
