Undine falls, Yellowstone
Has anyone looked here, been here, made any connections with this waterfall one way or another?
Would really love to read any and all comments on this before I spill my discovery.

Undine falls, Yellowstone
Update
I'll give you a "clue", copied from Yellowstone.net. IMO this waterfall is VERY important to the solve. Look especially close at the photo, maybe even upside down? ...stay with me now, there is more coming

How to Get There

Undine Falls is four miles east of Mammoth, near the roadway, and accessible by an easy, short hike. 

Brief Description and History

Lava Creek spills over the cliff face of a basalt lava flow that was emplaced about 700,000 years ago.  The falls is approximately 60 feet in height, descending in three plunges. 

Originally called “East Gardner Falls,” “Cascade Falls of the East Gardiner,” or “Gardiner River Falls,” Undine received its present name in 1885 from geologist Arnold Hague. Undine (Webster says it is pronounced UN deen) was named for wise, usually female water spirits from German mythology who lived around waterfalls and who could gain souls by marrying mortal men.

Seriously? Nothing, ok this aught to get people talking.
Now comare this to the falls picture above, remember upside down, and maybe backward.
Notice how the gypsies arm lines up with the stick in the fall?[Image: c33a7c0681935981a54c3974b1553597.jpg]

Only one question remains. If i flipped the the picture of the waterfall upside down, and we're told to look quickly down, would that mean the bottom of the falls, or the top?

RE: Undine falls, Yellowstone
If the clues lead you to this location, fine. Have a look. However, I could google search waterfalls and find two dozen or more falls that would correlate with the pic. Again I say if you are led there, don't let anything distract you. Just be careful for confirmation bias.

The picture aligned in five different places. The wheels of the wagon on the rocks above, the shape of the wagon on the fall, the main dancer again on the fall but in the opposite direction, I could go on, but after the fifth alignment I was convinced.
