2013 March 5 – Grand Canyon to Kanab, Utah (Part 1)

We spent our second day at the Grand Canyon touring the eastern part of the South Rim.  We took the Park Shuttle to Yaki Point and worked our way back to the Visitor’s Center where we had parked our car after checking out of the hotel. The shuttle picked us up and took us to Pipecreek Vista. From Pipecreek Vista we walked the Rim Trail back to the Visitor’s Center, collected our car and drove along Desert View Drive, with stops at Grandview Point, Moran Point, and Lipan Point.

                In some ways the photos just look phony.

Looking down on the Visitor’s Center from the watchtower at Desert View.  The watchtower was a mini-museum featuring Navajo art. We exited Grand Canyon National Park at the East Entrance and headed north along Highway 89 toward Kanab, Utah where we were to spend the night before embarking on our journey through the five National Parks in southern Utah.
