  • .There are lots of places with great views and this is one and you can drive there. We had some weather so the sky was quite dramatic  more »
  • One of the points recommended by the National Park, have to stop, because the visual is different in each of the points. Valley sit for a while and contemplate the visual.

  • The view here never gets old. This year on my birthday I witnessed the most incredible lightning storm and got some of the best photos of my life. This was the icing on the cake for what has been an amazing two week vacation in Arizona.
  • Beautiful spot. Great view of Grand Canyon. However, concerned for young children under 18 years of age. Saw a few going to edge of canyon. Others walking on rock formations beyond barrier's. Parents just watching them. Crazy. A woman fell off the cliff the previous week. And these kids tempting fate. I'm giving it 5 Stars ONLY for the beauty. They really need a ranger or someone in authority present in these view areas.
  • Great view,absolutely fantastic location. Magnificent!
  • Very nice views. Easily accessible. Amazing!
  • Awesome scenery. A must see in person.
