  • Otherwise live up to this name, Grand Canyon National Park, the canyon scenery is particularly spectacular, scattered chic canyon scenery let people photographic memory, Grand Canyon Spectacular, not only in its strange and varied peaks of different stone and cliff pillars, but also in its color changes. Because the canyon two walls of rock nature, the mineral content of different, in the sun exposure, showing different colors, such as iron ore will appear colorful, very beautiful

  • Grandview Point is one of a handful of stops you can make along the Desert View Road from the Grand Canyon Village. This is the the location of a late 19th century hotel built by entrepreneur, Pete Berry hoping to cash in on the tourism boom that had started at the Grand Canyon. There is no evidence of the old hotel or log cabin that was here prior to that. However, there is an information board detailing its history. Further, this is the start of the Grandview Trail, which was used by earlier visitors to scale down the Rim into the canyon. This remains a popular hike today and is probably, a good reason to stop here beyond simply viewing into Grand Canyon to take in the splendid views If you are driving out to Dessert View Watchtower, this makes a nice stopping point. Views here are quite impressive. You can see the North Rim very well as well as glance in both the eastern and western directions into the canyon. You can take a few pictures, read the historical accounts provided at this stop and then be on your way east to other viewpoints along the way to the watchtower. Note: The Desert View Drive from the Grand Canyon Village is a round trip 50 mile drive. Make sure to give yourself at least 2-3 hours so you have enough time for a few stops along the way for various viewpoints, the Tusayan Museum and the Desert View Watchtower attraction.
