Testimony of Nature’s Patience – Grand Canyon in Arizona, USA

Not far from Las Vegas, Grand Canyon West Rim makes an ideal place for a short trip. You will get the opportunity to see the Grand Canyon from different perspectives. Walk on the famous Skywalk and see the beautiful canyon from Guano Point and Eagle Point. If you love adventure then fly over the Grand Canyon in a helicopter or go for a zip line. If you are like me who loves seeing stars in an open desert then spend a night in a cabin in Hualapai Ranch

Tip: I highly recommend seeing the gorgeous Grand Canyon at the golden hour, especially if you love photography. Experience a golden sunset cast against the majestic Grand Canyon’s West Rim. Book Grand Canyon West Sunset tour from Las Vegas and skip the line through the express security check. 

The enormous and intricate Grand Canyon is formed by millions of years of work by the Colorado river while it was establishing its course through it. Nature works silently without any grandeur for years and creates these beautiful wonders. No doubt the Grand Canyon is one of the seven wonders of nature. While drinking the pleasure of the scenery all around, for once I thought I was one of the happiest persons in the world. I am privileged enough to witness such a magnificent and amazing beauty. There is no need to run and pursue happiness, it comes!

 

Two viewpoints on Grand Canyon West Rim

We visited two viewpoints in Grand Canyon West Rim. The first one was Eagle Point and the second was Guano Point. At the Eagle point, one not only enjoys the beautiful panoramic view but also witnesses the eagle-shaped natural formation of the Canyon. Also definitely worth exploring is the North Rim of the Grand Canyon

Tip: I suggest taking a bus tour from Las Vegas and discover nature’s miracle at locations such as Guano Point and Eagle Point. In this 10 hours long trip, starting at 7:00 am, learn from the professional tour guide about the facts and enjoy exclusive photo opportunities. You will be picked up from your hotel. Book your trip here and experience the beauty of the Grand Canyon West.

Carved out by the Colorado River, the Grand Canyon (nearly 1,500 m deep) is the most spectacular gorge in the world.

The Grand Canyon is among the earth’s greatest on-going geological spectacles.

Transparent Skywalk

Another attraction at Eagle Point was walking on the Skywalk (A transparent horse shoe shaped cantilever bridge). Though photography was not allowed while walking on the skywalk (Photography is only allowed if one pays!). We clicked some photographs from outside. 

Tip: If you are an adventurer at heart, then book this Grand Canyon West Rim tour and walk the Skywalk, take a helicopter flight to the foot of the Canyon, and sail along the Colorado River.

Guano point

The story behind the Guano point is something different. During the 1930’s a boater passing through the Canyon discovered a cave which later was found to be rich with “Guano” or bat droppings. This material was rich in nitrogen and very useful as a fertilizer. The U.S. Guano Corporation had purchased the mining rights in 1957 and began to construct the Tramway to extract the Guano from the mine. Using a cable that spanned the Canyon at 7,500 feet, cable cars were used for transporting both the guano and miners, which lasted until early 1960. A few months later the cable was damaged by an Air Force Jet’s tail and never re-opened. The cable head-house remains as well as some remnants in the cave and is now a tourist destination at Grand Canyon West.

The Grand Canyon West Rim

The Grand Canyon West Rim is undoubtedly a paradise for photographers. One can spend days capturing this magnificent nature’s creation. I tried my best to capture the picturesque vista with my unprofessional camera and to preserve those lovely reminiscences with indomitable passion. Whenever I share my feelings, my experiences and my photographs with my readers, I feel tranquility deep down in my heart. Sharing is such a joy!

Hello. My name is Chirasree. I have been traveling for almost 11 years to places all over the world. I enter into a separate reality during my travels and enjoy the allure of escape from the mundane. I seek beauty through nature and human-made creations. Because beauty is powerful. I seek knowledge. I observe, absorb, and write about the places I visit and the profound realizations and inspirations that each place has to offer.
