We used the shuttle to travel from Thunderbird Lodge to Lipan point where we witnessed the sunset like I've never seen it before. The canyon comes alive and changed each minute as the sun makes is way to the horizon. Get there about 1 hour before sunset to witness the magic at its best.

Lipan point had a great view for the sunset. But to be honest we enjoyed all the views of the grand canyon. It is an amazing place and we are glad we made the trip to experience it first hand.

Most guidebooks correctly point out this is the best point to look down upon the Grand Canyon. I arrived around 4pm and the viewpoint looks westwards so light was suboptimal for phototaking but nonetheless well worth going to. I would just recommend heading in the morning for better light conditions (i.e., sun behind you).

We thought this was the best view of the canyon that we saw the entire trip. What's nice about it is that you get both a view across as well as a view down the canyon. Plus you get a great view of the Colorado River and a sense of it's majesty.

It's also super convenient on your way out the East exit, or worth the 15 min trip from the main rim lodge area.

We watched about 5 helicopters touring the canyon, which were all BELOW us....how cool is that!!

This is such a treat on the East Rim of the Grand Canyon. Time it just right and the lighting is perfect for capturing all the colors and the lovely rapids sinewy Colorado River. Great show!
