Enjoy sweeping views of the Grand Canyon from Powell Point, dedicated to an early explorer who ventured along the Colorado River through the spectacular scenery.

I guess every Vista point is just breath taking in it's own way. Watched the canyon lit up in shades of red during sunset last month. Just take the red loop to reach this spot.
Awesome viewing area with spectacular views in every direction. We visited in late March and the temperature was perfect. We enjoyed mid 60’s with almost cloudless skies.

Amazing to see millions and millions of years of geological progression all in one spot.
