Desert View Watch Tower

Desert View Watch Tower

This 1930s historic stone tower (designed by architect Mary Colter) is situated in the perfect place to view both Hopi and Navajo Indian lands.  It also represents a great way of featuring the historical and cultural perspectives of those peoples as it provides a place for cultural demonstrations.  It features Hopi artist, Fred Kabotie murals that are guaranteed to delight and inspire.


From this vantage point you can also see the Painted Desert and the Colorado River.

South Kaibab Trail at Cedar Ridge

South Kaibab Trail at Cedar Ridge

If you are into hiking, the South Kaibab Trail at Cedar Ridge is a wonderful not too long trek trail near the Grand Canyon.  It is especially delightful in the spring and cooler months in the fall through November.


Now you may find that you will share this trail with horses.  You'll also find that desert blooms after a rain of wild flowers will not only bring out the photographer in you -- but also show you wildlife in the most unexpected moments.   


South Kaibab Trail is also popular with our feathered friends and those of us who enjoy birding.  Keep in mind though while its an easy hike down but expect an aerobic workout coming back up.

Guano Point

Guano Point

If you long to see 360 degree views of the Grand Canyon, Guano Point will not disappoint.  This adveure Guano Pointe is strictly for the sure-footed as there are no railings if you decided to take the "Highpoint Hike" for those coveted 360 degree photo opd.


If you aren't the athletic type, don't despair -- there's the Guano Deli for snacking on the edge of the Grand Canyon and plenty of shopping for arts, crafts, and jewelry in the local Hualapai Market.

North RIm Canyon Mule Ride

North Rim Canyon Mule Ride

You haven't really seen the Grand Canyon if you only view it from the top or the sky.  The complete picture of the grandeur of the Grand Canyon needs to include a journey to the depths of the canyon.  


There are several modern day mule trips that vary in duration.  They are quite safe and a whole lot of fun.  It's a little scary for the humans but the sturdy mules take the whole trip in stride with seemingly not a care.  This is one travel adventure guaranteed to never be forgotten.
