This photo of the Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River was taken from a spot called “Artist Point.” It was originally named in 1883 by Frank Jay Haynes (official photographer of Yellowstone NP) who mistakenly believed that the point was where Thomas Moran painted his famous 1872 depiction of the falls. The original painting is displayed in the Smithsonian Museum. It has been determined that the view was from the north rim. However, I am sure many artists have painted the falls from this point, so it is still a good name.
I mistakenly thought we would be able to see both the Upper and Lower Falls from this spot. I was disappointed to find out there was nowhere you could see both falls at the same time.
How often are we disappointed with God’s blessings?
