Yellowstone National Park: Frozen Lower Falls 1000 Piece Puzzle
Photographer: James Kucharas
Skill Level: Difficult
Lower Falls, located in the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, is the tallest waterfall in the park at 308 feet. The volume of water flowing over the falls can vary from 63,500 gallons /second at peak runoff in the spring to 5,000 gallons/second in the autumn. The view points of this waterfall are one of the most photographed areas of the park. The Lower Falls puzzle is my number one best selling puzzle as well! No matter which viewpoint you stop at to see it the first time, it will take your breath away!
Well, as i learned in February last year, the view from Artist Point REALLY takes your breath away during the winter with wind driven, below zero temps! These are obviously significant, bitterly cold winds that are able to freeze a huge, fast moving waterfall like this! Every year, an enormous ice dam forms at the base of the Lower Falls. It often grows to more than 100 feet tall and is truly a wonder of the wild. I suspect when i took this photo, that ice wall was closer to 200 feet. My finger still hasnt completely thawed from removing my glove to take the photo!
All of our 1000 Piece puzzles measure 27.6 x 19.7 inches when completed. They are cut with an irregular piece shape to aid and strenthen your assembly quest, as well as produce an interlock so tight you can pick it up and flip it over (gently) without losing a piece. (Watch this and see!) They are manufactured using 100% Recycled Grade A chipboard, 1/16 inch thick resulting in sturdy, durable pieces that wont bend or break easily, and mated to a premium Matte finished print. They are then cut using 2 different presses, each going a different direction. This ensures your pieces are always fully cut, not stuck together so you have to tear them apart, damaging your pieces. (Click here for brief video) The end result is a puzzle worthy of being framed and hung in your living room! And we are working on a plan to offer handmade (right in our warehouse) wooden frames in a variety of colors and styles so you can do just that!
