The Watchtower at Desert View.

Designed by architect Mary Colter in the 1930s, it mimics an Anasazi watchtower. Each stone was handpicked for size and appearance, and weathered faces left untouched to give the tower an ancient look.

The view from the Watchtower, with a wide sweep of the Colorado River visible from here

John and I at Lipan Point

My favourite photo - John looks out from Lipan Point

Grandview Point ... the name says it all! This photo is looking west ...

Zooming in on one of the 'temples' or 'shrines', as they call these outcrops (you can see why though!)

Back at El Tovar for dinner, and watching the sunset before a proper sun-downer cocktail!

Painting the sky above us red
