The lower falls are 308 feet (94 m) high, or almost twice as high as Niagara. The volume of water is in no way comparable to Niagara as the width of the Yellowstone River before it goes over the lower falls is 70 feet (22 m), whereas Niagara is a half mile (800 m).

The lower falls descend from the 590,000 year old Canyon Rhyolite lava flow. The lower falls of Yellowstone is still the largest volume major waterfall in the Rocky Mountains of the United States. The volume of water flowing over the falls can vary from 63,500 USgal/s (240 m/s) at peak runoff to 5,000 USgal/s (19 m/s) in the fall.

No doubt this will go down like a lead balloon because it's portrait.

The rivers and glacial melt that formed Yellowstone would make Niagara look like a drip in the bathroom tap. Looks spectacular here Malcolm, wonderful light as well as the water. Size doesn't always relate to grandeur and beauty. But the Americans do love BIG.
