Grand Canyon National Park

Grand Canyon varies in width from less that a mile to over 18 miles (1.5 to 29 km) but averages 10 miles (16 km) wide. No roads cross the canyon between Navajo Bridge (Lees Ferry) and Hoover Dam for 340 miles (547 km). . .

Grand Canyon National Park

Cape Royal, on the North Rim of the park, provides a panorama up, down, and across the canyon. With seemingly unlimited vistas to the east and west, it is a popular location for both sunrise and sunset. This popular viewpoint is accessible via a paved, level trail. . . [Image: looking down into a vast canyon landscape of colorful ridgelines, slopes, peaks and cliffs.]

Point Imperial, the highest point on the North Rim of the park, at 8,803 feet (2,683 meters), overlooks the Painted Desert and the eastern end of Grand Canyon. -mq .

Grand Canyon National Park wishes you, your friends and family, a safe and enjoyable 4th of July. Happy Independence Day!

Sunset from Yavapai Point, on this the last day of June, 2019. Can you believe the year is half over? There is no one best place for watching sunrise or sunset at Grand Canyon, just good places and better places. Look for a viewpoint that juts into the canyon with views both east and west. Along Hermit Road, Mohave, and Pima Points offer spectacular views of the canyon, are less congested than Hopi Point, and allow you to see the Colorado River a mile below! . Points along Desert View Drive that offer great east and west panoramas include Yaki, Navajo, and Desert View. . Lipan Point, near Desert View, offers incredible views of the canyon with the San Francisco Peaks to the south, the distant Painted Desert, and extensive stretches of the river below. . .

From Desert View, on the South Rim of the park, you can see the Colorado River make a big bend and continue to the west, with the North Rim more than 10 miles away, and a panoramic view for well over 100 miles, on a clear day. . .
