  • The view from this point is stunning. You can see a large area of the canyon & the colors are beautiful.

  • As grand as it could ever be... the Grand Canyon truly deserve its name. It is magnificently grand and vast and awesomely scenic and picturesque. I have taken numerous photos and I can't get enough of it. We went to the South rim (Lipan and Mather point). Both has excellent view and photo ops! Love, love the south rim location. So much better than the west rim we visited 14 years ago (though they have the skywalk). I have to say.. you haven't seen Grand Canyon unless you've been to South rim. Bucket list ✔️.
  • This was my favorite viewpoint on the south rim. They are all pretty but not all can see the river. And there was some more walking around you could do.
  • For me the most beuatiful spot along the whole Grand Canyon. We had a BBQ here and watched the sunset in absolute silence and solitude. Magnificent.
  • I loved all the points that I went to in the Grand Canyon! It was Awesome
  • It's a bit of a drive from south rim to desert watch tower, but must stop by at this point for a wholesome view of South rim grand canyon
