We altered our planned vacation route after tips from friends about this Canyon. What a great decision that was! The drive along the south rim was easily accessible, with many places to stop to see the gorge. There is a very good visitors' center with video presentations, many explanatory displays, gift shop, and rest rooms. We also discovered a very knowledgeable staff of national park guides who were quite helpful.
The canyon itself is phenomenal, with sheer cliffs that drop away at your feet. Even with protective railings, we still felt an incredible adrenaline rush as we looked down 2300 feet! This place is a photographer's dream. Abundant wildflowers line the roads and walkways. Take a picnic lunch and plenty of water and enjoy the scenery along the way.
This attraction costs $15 per car to enter, and it is worth every penny. As a bonus, for the stout of heart, there is a road which leads directly to the canyon floor. One should allow at least half a day to wander through this park and see all that is there. It is a Must See!
