In 1871, Hayden Expedition survey artist Thomas Moran described Yellowstone’s Grand Canyon as “beyond the resource of human art”. Undoubtedly his paintings and sketches helped persuade Congress and President Grant to make Yellowstone the world’s first national park. This view of the canyon and the Yellowstone River was taken from the Brink of the Lower Falls (on the North Rim) during peak run-off in late May.
