Nothing evokes the grandeur of Red Rock Country as much as Grand Canyon National Park. Stunning vistas marked with cliffs, gorges, and flats conjure up images of how the Earth must have looked at the time of creation. Catch the sunrise at Lipan Point with panoramic views of the canyon bursting into light. At Mather Point and Yavapai Observation Station, you can see layered bands of rocks that appear to change color with the angle of the sun. Abundant outdoor opportunities await you at the canyon, from rafting down the Colorado River to hiking the North Kaibab Trail alongside Bright Angel Creek and Ribbon Falls. Designed by famous architect Mary Colter, the historic Desert View Watchtower blends into the surrounding landscape of rocky columns while the intricate carvings at the top recall the culture of the ancient Puebloan people. As dusk sets in, visitors can enjoy a spectacular evening sky from vantage points such as Grandview, with Horseshoe Mesa spread out below.
