Grand Canyon Watchtower


The Grand Canyon is one of the most inspirational and spiritual landmarks in North America. Its sheer size is daunting and practically impossible to capture effectively with a photograph.  With spans over 10 miles wide and depths over 6000 feet, you can spend a lifetime studying the canyon and never see it all.


In this snapshot, you can see the Grand Canyon Watchtower off in the distance. Located at the Desert View visitor’s center at the Canyon’s East rim, the watchtower stands 70 feet high and was constructed in 1932. It was designed to replicate similar towers that were once built by Native Americans all across the Colorado Plateau.
