You will feel small looking at this magnificent magnitude. 100% nature work and there is no tiny photo that can capture its beauty. There are hikes that can be taken if you want to dive deeper in the Grand Canyon, but the view from the rim is a fantastic alternative if you prefer a bird's eye view without the exhausting hike.
Excellent view of the natural wonder... really should be on everybody’s bucket list. There’s a nearby visitor center and book store, and there are plenty of parking spaces. It is also well maintained. Just don’t go wandering beyond the safe zone.
