  • In the Grand Canyon visit scenic viewpoints are many, and all quite interesting. The first are spectacular, because never seen before, but going forward the landscape becomes known, and therefore always the same. A word of advice: in summer, shelter from the Sun!

  • Definitely a must stop at Moran point although less famous than the others. I think it's one of the most beautiful and worthy to do some nice photo shots. Then what of no small importance is that it is less busy and therefore find place for parking is less tiring. Go for it!!

  • Great view of the Colorado River. The Canyon is amazing, but when water is part of the view, it's extra special.  more »

  • This is one of the most stunning views you will get from Grand Canyon South Rim - fantastic depth and layering of this famous canyon. We were lucky seeing rain clouds and thunderstorms moving across this dramatic landscape. It was a memorable light show we will never forget.
  • Perhaps the best view, and usually has the least crowds on the south rim.
  • Some of the best views I've experienced
  • A bit more toned down nature, and although the other outlooks were remarkable as well I did find this one most enjoyable
  • I liked it. Cool place. The grand canyon takes your breath away.
