grand canyon,grand canyon view points


Please bare in mind these images were taken with a digital camera only capable of producing a 500 KB Jpg picture.

The look out points at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon

When taking photos at an altitude at or over 6000 feet you should use a "UV" filter to take out the bluish cast that the Ultra produces.
As you can see I did not because they do not make on one for this inexpensive camera.

Tusayan Ruin and Museum

Pronounced "2-see-an" or "2-say-an" The "an" is pronounced as in on & off.



A visit to the Tusayan Ruin and Museum provides a glimpse of ancestral Puebloian life some 800 years ago.
The Museum is located three miles west of the Desertview viewing site. The museum is open daily from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Admission is free.


At first as at many sites along the rim there are information signs you need to take the time to read.

I was told by a park Ranger that 99% of the people who do get into trouble here
is because they either don't read the signs or they don't heed the signs.


The day I was there a Park Ranger lead the tour through the ruins. There were two guided tours daily.
11:00 AM & 1:30 AM lasting approximately 60 minutes.


In side the museum are a few displays.
