  • Breathtaking view of the Grand Canyon. I have seen photos in movies and online but they do not do it justice. I was lucky enough to show up while they were doing a tour and the park ranger was just spewing out facts left and right. I wish I was not so engrossed by the view and actually listened to what she was saying because what I did hear was pretty interesting.
  • It's the Grand Canyon. There are no words to describe the views you will encounter. Highly recommended to visit at sunrise of sundown.
  • The view of the canyon from here is well worth the stop. The museum is very informative.
  • There are nearly innumerable points at the Grand Canyon to find views. This is no exception! It's also amazing how different the Canyon looks at different times of the day.
  • Nice view from the canyon for a sunset if you coming from the north entrance and you are late for the Main area
