Sunset over the Grand Canyon

A tip if you ever plan on going to the Grand Canyon and hope to watch the sunset or the sunrise from one of the numerous viewing platforms on the South Rim…Back in 2012 we spent five days in the Grand Canyon and had the opportunity to take in a few sunsets. The Grand Canyon is pretty amazing but unfortunately since alot of the areas are off limits and well there is a giant canyon your viewing areas are limited. As such the viewing platforms are typically very clustered and you are forced to get in position sixty to ninety minutes in advance and then you have to defend your position. Sunrises – for obvious reasons – are a little less crowded but still expect to have more people (10 – 20) than you typically would at other national park locations where the views are more spread out.
