  • The views! An often skipped point so you can feel a little more private than say Mather Point or Desert View Tower.
  • The Grand Canyon cannot be truly experienced in pictures...it is a must be there type of thing.
  • The view here is a must see! Awesome photo opportunity and an unbelievable view of the canyon.
  • Wonderful views. Clean and well maintained. Has a shuttle bus service.
