  • Easily accessible with nearby parking lot with some of the best views of the Grand Canyon along the South Rim but as a result also one of the busiest locations in the Park. Great area for watching...  more »
  • Probably one of my favorite areas of the park. Also adjacent to a geology museum. Just awe inspiring. Has an adjacent parking lot if you don't want to hike the rim trail.  more »
