Another Grand Canyon

It's in Yellowstone National Park, and it's actually named The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. At roughly 20 miles long, it features no less than three waterfalls for a sight that's truly spectacular. The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone that you see today is somewhere between 10,000 and 14,000 years old, which the National Park Service describes as "a very recent geologic feature." It was cut by the Yellowstone River, the longest undammed river in the continental U.S. The canyon varies from 800 to 1,200 feet deep -- not as deep as the actual Grand Canyon, but we'll take it.
