  • Excellent view of painted desert. Don't skip this stop. Good place to see the sunset.
  • We watched sunset here and it was very good. Gets crowded so get there early for parking and a good spot.
  • Beautiful View from the south rim. Keep going to you get just before the desert tower. That is my favorite view point from the south rim
  • Amazing views as far as you can see. This is when you realize how truly small you are in the vast of Grand Canyon.
  • Amazing view you can have a better river view here. Easy to access.
