  • As grand as it could ever be... the Grand Canyon truly deserve its name. It is magnificently grand and vast and awesomely scenic and picturesque. I have taken numerous photos and I can't get enough of it. We went to the South rim (Lipan and Mather point). Both has excellent view and photo ops! Love, love the south rim location. So much better than the west rim we visited 14 years ago (though they have the skywalk). I have to say.. you haven't seen Grand Canyon unless you've been to South rim. Bucket list ✔️.
  • At Lipan Point, you can see the rock bottom of the Grand Canyon, which was cut and sculptured by the winding and mighty Colorado River.
