Drove all night from Vegas just to watch the sunrise from here. It was very much worth the trip. Beautiful scenery accompanied by beautiful colors- from the sky to the bottom of the canyon. Bring something warm as it dipped down into the low 20s and was very windy. Otherwise you won't be disappointed.

there are lots of nice viewpoints along the park. Each of them is worth stopping there and admiring the Canyon

Visited the Grand Canyon for a day. Absolutely incredible, breath taking views from every lookout and walkway. Way more incredible than I ever thought it would be in person. Would recommend visiting this incredible view of nature during your lifetime.

There is small viewing area but really, if you walk away from that, further up is a much better spot where you can actually see the sun break. The area wasn't crowded as I imagine it is... More

We had brilliant sunrise view of the clouds and the canyon in the morning of end October. There were not many visitors there that morning, so we could take photographs. Fantastic view of the canyon.

I was with a photography group and we did a sunset shoot at this location. The sun comes in at an angle from the left and hits the tops of the buttes just beautifully.

This is a great view of the canyon and the area has a lot of nature and can be very crowded depending on the weather.
