This was the last bus stop for the South Rim. Charming old building with delicious coffee and cocoa and breathtaking views. Lots of Elk at the end of the trail.

We enjoyed going to Hermit Trial. They had restrooms and a store. We also had a cup of coffee up there. Coffee was not high priced. Very surprised!

We did part of the Hermit Trail. Needless to say, given the canyon this trail is challenging. Lots of switchbacks and rocky trail. Very nice views and worth the effort.

Souvenir stop and one of the amazing views at the Grand Canyon Park. Very picturesque and a good stop to rest if needed. Food stand a little pricey. Staff at souvenir store were pleasant and informative.
