Prove that you're "smarter than the average bear" by solving this panoramic jigsaw puzzle of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone showing the dramatic Lower Falls waterfall pictured through the beautiful greenery of the trees in the foreground. Covering a huge area of 3,472 square miles, Yellowstone was the first National Park in the world when it was given National Park status on 1st march 1972.
The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone is a 24 mile long ravine which varies from 245 metres to 370 metres deep, with a width of 500 metres to 1,300 metres. It began to form about 16,000 years ago around the end of the most recent ice age, when melting ice began to flow from the Yellowstone Lake upstream. The forces of water, ice and rocks being transported in the flow cut through the relatively soft volcanic rock in the canyon. Since then, and continuing to this day, it has eroded ever downwards by the forces of the river flowing through it.
There are three main waterfalls which can be found in the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, as well as a number of smaller waterfalls too. The largest is the Lower Falls which can be seen just above the center of this panoramic jigsaw puzzle. This waterfall at the Southern end of the Canyon is 94 meters high, which is almost twice the height of Niagara Falls. A little distance upstream the Upper Falls can be found which is just over 33 metres high. This may sound small when compared to the 94 meters of the Lower Falls but it is actually still very impressive indeed. The names of the Upper and Lower Falls were first given to these two waterfalls in a 1869 map. A few years later in 1889 a plan was drawn up to build an elevator to carry visitors straight to the base of the Lower Fals, but this never actually came to fruition.
Located about 150 metres up a tributary between Upper and Lower Falls is The Crystal Falls waterfall which drops a total of 39 metres in three tiers, Just above Crystal Falls is a beautiful pool - a haven of relative calm before the plunge of water down toward the canyon.
