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.

We visited for sunrise, got there at about 6:10am. There were many people already set up for photos. The colors were amazing! We absolutely loved it, once in a lifetime experience!

Get here early for a good spot to watch the sunrise, good for sunset as well. People were at the edge taking photos scaring me to death.

Great views, obviously. You need to take a shuttle bus from the visitor center to get here, but do it. It's worth it. This is where the S. Kaibab Trail starts. I encourage you to hike that trail (no water so bring your own). At LEAST hike down to "Ooh Ahh point."

Another great spot for views Yaki Point provides a clear vista of the Canyon from all sides.. You can walk sown from the parking area to some rocky outcrops for great views

You can drive to see this point and the east side is less crowded on most days. I think the best is closer to the visitor center.
