I think this viewpoint had the best view of the Colorado River in the valley below. It was awe inspiring to see the river winding down below in the canyon.

We felt it was important to take on as many view points as possible. As you drive to the Eastern Rim, you will land on this location. Great colors in the mountains and the textures of the cliffs are amazing.

Grand Canyon is a beauty by itself but putting effort into research to find this place was absolutely worth it. The view made my visit so much better and I am definitely coming back to see this view one more time in my lifetime.

This view gives a great vista of the Colorado River and was my favorite view of all! The colors popped and the snaking river made for an amazing picture.

We stopped here after Desert View expecting a lot of people, but apparently not many go to other viewpoints. We did not experience many crowds here and it was pretty peaceful.

Lipan gives you a great view of the Colorado deep down in the canyon valley. Amazing colours on the canyon walls are not to be missed.

Be prepared for the wind and get there at least 30 min before sunset. As sunset nears the crowd increases. Many different photo points and areas for climbing onto viewpoints that give you different height and compass perspectives. There is s section that has barriers...More
