Navajo point offer one of the best spots to see the sun setting on the Grand Canyon. You can also see the Desert View Watchtower wich is nearby and some other views from the opposite side of the tower.

The Watch Tower is a ways off to the right, but you can get a decent zoomed in picture from Navajo Point.

This is a an excellent place to get a quick glimpse of the desert view watchtower from a different angle. There are also some really nice views of the canyon.
