Hopi Point

They call this the SUN SET point because this is where most come at sun set to watch it.

It's also my favorite view point.


At many of the points you will have at least a 180 degree view of the canyon and at others you will have over a 200 degree view of the canyon.

Here at Hopi Point I would guess you will have at least a 270 degree view of the canyon.

On a clear day you can see almost 100 miles.
