A different view & a different perspective of the Grand Canyon with yellowish rocks and small stretch of Colorado river in view. The view of Desert View Watchtower further east is very impressive as it adds a different element to the whole setup. The words...More

This point is a "must stop to see" spot. It's the tail end of one side of the canyon and on the way to the north side.An entirely different view than other points.

This is on the way to the Desert View Watchtower. One of the best views on the South Rim. We saw this on our way back from the Watchtower and unfortunately could only stay for around 10-15 minutes. I recommend that you spend more time...More
