Native American tribes were likely to have known about the falls for centuries, and William Clark made note about hearing of their existence during the Lewis and Clark Expedition. But the first European to lay eyes on the Lower Yellowstone Falls was likely French fur trapper Baptise Ducharme who claimed to see the sight in 1824, 1826 and 1839. The earliest known drawings were recorded in 1870 during the Washburn-Langford-Doane Expedition by Private Charles Moore. And then in 1871, William Henry Jackson captured the first photographs of the falls. To this day, people travel from from all over the world visit this cascade which carved out the majestic yellow stone canyon. View Print Options
