Had to wake up at 0500 to catch the shuttle and go there before dawn. Sunrise is beautiful but far from impressive. I thought I wasted some time here

It's absolutely breathtakingly beautifull at this place. Trying to capture it on photo is tricky, especially the awesome sunset you can view here. When traveling to the canyon, try and plan for a sunset here, you won't regret it.

Best views on the South Rim. Only place the first day we were there where the fog burned off. Beautiful sunset. Must take the orange shuttle but that is easy and free. Do not miss it!

I took the shuttle bus there since Mather Point at that time was misted over,and was able to see the bottom of the canyon as it was clear. By the time I got back to Mather Point it was also clear..perfect timing.

Wake up early. Take the first or second shuttle of the day to Yaki point. Watch the sunrise. Take your time. Get there when it's pitch-black and stay until it's bright. The changes in the lighting over the landscape make it worth it. No picture will capture just how beautiful it is.

If you are staying at Yavapai or elsewhere in the eastern section, this is the place to go for sunrise. Plenty of terraced areas to step up your tripod. Sun comes up to your right so it is not directly in your eyes, and it slowly fills the canyon with shades of gold and orange.

This was one of our favorite stops. There is a small dirt lot just past the turnoff where the buses take you. Do not take the bus but instead drive your car to the small dirt lot 100 feet past the turnoff and park there. Then walk across the street to the trail that cuts through the trees to the... More

One could just sit here forever looking out at the scenery. We even had a cheeky squirrel come right up to us and amazingly he posed right on the edge of the drop off and we got a magnificent photo with the canyon in the background.

We were there and they were giving a talk on migrating birds. The talk was very informative and after the girl giving the presentation invited everyone to visit the area they observe the migrating birds.
