Desert View Watchtower, Grand Canyon

On the eastern edge of Grand Canyon's south rim drive.  This was our introductio to the canyon, and a fine one indeed!  The watchtower was built in 1932 and includes a gift shop and spiral sairs to overlooking levels.  The top viewing platform was closed, probably a combination of safety for both the tower and partons....  Larger version, etc.. HERE

Here's the family, enjoying the view.  Yep, a snapshot moment!
And lastly, a veiw as you approach the tower from the parking area...  Also a bit "snapshoty"...  The top photo is taken from off the left side of this image, fram along the canyon edge.

1932! It looks so very much older than that.
