The Grand Canyon in Arizona! (South Rim)

October 25, 2015

 

     Grand Canyon National Park, in Arizona, is home to much of the immense Grand Canyon, with its layered bands of red rock revealing millions of years of geological history. Viewpoints include Mather Point, Yavapai Observation Station and architect Mary Colter’s Lookout Studio and her Desert View Watchtower. Lipan Point, with wide views of the canyon and Colorado River, is a popular, especially at sunrise and sunset.

     If you are lucky enough, you may see wildlife wandering around the parking area before you even make it to the canyons. 

 

 

   

     When you first walk up to the tourist area it is nothing but over crowded and hard to find a parking space.  Once you have made your way towards the large canyons your jaw will drop when you see it's immense size and unique landscape.

 

     As you look out over the canyons you will see rock formations that actually take shape to mystify you even further.
