    Красивое место и не менее красивая дорога туда. Въезд $25 за машину на 3 дня.

    A great stop at the eastern most viewpoint of the Canyon. Definitely go up in the tower as is painted with replica Native American drawings and paintings. Also have food in addition to other amenities

    Definitely a great overlook. Gas here if absolutely needed. Price per gallon on the high side. Nearby Lipan Point great, especially in morning.

    A less crowded & beautiful Grand Canyon vista. The Watchtower is fun to visit. The next two viewpoints (Navajo Pt, Lipan Pt) west give some of the best views of the Grand Canyon and the Colorado River Read more
