Photographer's Note

The inclusion of people & part of the lookout platform, give a better idea of scale, than previous uploads. Taken late afternoon, so not much that I could do about the shadow across the canyon at right. I commuted from Flagstaff, although expensive accomodation is available at Grand Canyon Village, for sunrise shots.

This section of the South Rim, is around 7,000 feet above sea level. The Canyon is a mile deep in places, where the Colorado River has cut down to the bedrock, over the millenia.
