This is one of the best overlooks in the park. Take your time and look both up and down the canyon. It is amazing how far and what you can see if you just take a little time, slow down and look..

Easy walk to the rock and rim edge. It offers great views and photo opportunities. It sure seems like a pulpit out there where one could orate to the masses.

This gives you a superb view of the canyon right down to the floor. Safety rails but not wheelchair accessible. Step carefully.

In my opinion this is the prime place from which to view this natural wonder of a canyon. In addition to the photos you'll take from the overlook, don't forget to get one back toward the overlook itself from terra firma to show your friends, so they can say, "Wow, you really stood there?!?" Actually it's not at all scary,... More
