When and where to stop in Yellowstone National Park is a challenge to everyone who visits the park. We suggest taking advantage of the many natural wonders close to the highway as you’re traveling between major destinations. It breaks up the drive, gets you out of the car, doesn’t take up too much time, let’s you see some amazing natural wonders and makes you feel like you’ve seen a lot more of the park. Undine Falls, pronounced (Un-deen) and Lava Creek are two of those places.
Undine Falls is a beautiful 3 tiered fall that drops 60 feet into a stark canyon and is just off the highway. Heading east on the Grand Loop Road outside of Mammoth Hot Springs, it’s a convenient stop for anyone heading towards the Lamar Valley or Tower Junction. The photo and video above were taken on Day 2 of our vacation in September. There was plenty of water flowing and the site and sounds were mesmerizing. There is a 1.8 mile trail system that is visited by hikers, birders, fishermen and nature lovers of all skill levels. Undine Falls is just one of many beautiful waterfalls in Yellowstone.
As you continue travelling East towards Lamar Valley, there is another stop that is a must and right down from the falls. Lava Creek is a small stream of water that flows under the highway. There are picnic tables and a nice shaded area where serenity can be found right off the road. The stream is crystal clear and when you sit on the creek bed, close your eyes and listen to the movement of the water, you can find a peace that exists in your mind’s eye. The below images will give you an idea of what to expect. Watch the video at the bottom & you can listen for yourself. Close your eyes and imagine yourself sitting on a fallen tree next to the rock bed. May this give you some inner peace to start your day.
