Desert View (Navajo Point)
South Rim Grand Canyon, AZ
The Grand Canyon is rightfully called one of the seven wonders of the world as it is one of the most remarkable natural wonders found anywhere. However, from a photography standpoint, it can be difficult to find one single location that captures the grandeur of the canyon.
For me, Desert View is my favorite location on the south rim of the canyon as it provides a spectacular view of the canyon in all her glory! From here, you can see the colors, the contrast, deep abstract gorges, endless layers of erosion, natural monuments and a great view of the reason it is here – the Colorado River.
The reason this location is called Desert View is - it is at the eastern most point of the Grand Canyon and it includes an amazing view of the desert, buttes and mountains to the east of the canyon.
