Tower Creek and Falls • Excerpted from The Guide to Yellowstone Waterfalls and Their Discovery, by Paul Rubinstein, Lee H. Whittlesey and Mike Stevens ~

This "chastely-beautiful" water-fall was called "Little Falls" by fur trappers. Jim Bridger himself gave that information to Father Jean DeSmet who showed it on an 1851 map. Tower Fall was named in 1870 by a member of the Washburn party, probably Samuel Hauser, who wrote in his diary: "Campt near the most beautiful falls – I ever saw – I named them 'Tower falls'—from the towers and pinnacles that surround them." Prospector A. Bart Henderson had seen it in 1867, noting as did Hauser that it was "the most beautiful falls I ever saw." Robert Strahorn in 1880 called it "one of the most beautiful falls to be found in any country," and in 1908, Mode Wineman averred that it was "a thing of hidden beauty in the wilderness." N.P. Langford called it "one of the most beautiful cataracts in the world." Lt. Gustavus Doane accompanied the 1870 party, and his reaction is probably the best known of early ones: "Nothing can be more chastely beautiful than this lovely cascade, hidden away in the dim light of overshadowing rocks and woods, its very voice hushed to a low murmur unheard at the distance of a few hundred yards. Thousands might pass by within a half-mile and not dream of its existence, but once seen, it passes to the list of most pleasant memories."

I can't say it any better than those above!

Traditional Fine Art Prints • I have all fine art prints printed at Bay Photo, an internationally known custom color lab.  After printing, Bay Photo ships the print to me for inspection and signing, I then ship them along to you. This takes awhile, be patient.

I spec them on “Moab’s  Lasal Exhibition Luster” photo paper. This paper weighs in at a healthy 300gsm, ideal for gallery and exhibition prints, the new fourth-generation coating ensures the highest possible d-max and color holdout. With product names like Entrada, Colorado, and Lasal its easy to see the source of inspiration for Legion Paper's Moab brand. Created in Moab, UT surrounded by the endless red rock wonders of Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, the Colorado River, and the LaSal Mountains, the Moab line of archival, digital imaging papers continues to rely on that inspiration to design premium solutions for digital photographers and artists.

Your paper print product will come pre-mounted on 3/16" Gator Foamboard, a very rigid, durable, and lightweight backing that will not warp, the premium backing for fine art prints. Having messed up prints myself putting them on mountaing board you will appreciate the extra effort and expanese.
