Grand Canyon – Desert View Watchtower

IMG_4360

The Desert View Watchtower at the Grand Canyon is a magical place. It is a great stone tower built right on the edge of the canyon rim way back in 1932. You can climb to the top and enjoy the views of the canyon and the Colorado River below. After that, you can strike out on a hike along the ledge of the Grand Canyon to get to your perfect photo spot.

If you are walking in downtown San Antonio, you are likely to see a large sculpture called the Torch of Friendship.  You may also experience direct sunlight and off in the distance, see the sunshine glinting off the exterior elevators as they carry passengers up to the top of the Tower of the Americas.
