Photographer's Note

The Grand Canyon is a steep sided canyon carved by the Colorado River. I recently visited the South Rim. The park is around 80 miles North of Flagstaff in Arizona. The first day , we took the red route which is on the west of the South Rim. Only shuttle buses are allowed on this route. There are 8 stops and one can hop in and out of the stops. This point is the 4th stop on this route.Hopi Point has a fenced viewing area next to the road, and a vista over the canyon centered on Dana Butte, a flat mesa 2,000 feet below the overlook. Salt Creek runs to one side, meeting the Colorado at a series of rapids, while Monument Creek is on the other side, joining the river at another set (Granite Rapids).

This is also a beautiful point to watch the sun set.
