Well, this place won't exist anymore and it's pretty beautiful. I think Bierstadt's depiction captures the feel of Yellowstone Falls perfectly.

No matter where you stand along the rim of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, the view of the Lower Falls is impressive. The cascade plummets over three hundred feet. Its base is enveloped in mist and is often crowned with a rainbow. The steep and jagged canyon walls range in color from rusty red to buttery yellow and even purple. For artists, the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone is a daunting, but irresistible, subject.
