The Grand Canyon

Mon, Oct 17, 2016

Carol and I arrived at our campsite and headed straight for Mather Point.  It’s perhaps the premier lookout on the south rim and is named for Stephen Mather, the first director of the National Park Service.

Here’s what the point looks like from the Rim trail.

No surprise that it’s a popular pace and congestion is a real problem in the Parks.  Honestly, at a lot of the places that we’ve visited, you can’t swing a dead cat without hitting someone with a selfie stick.

Here’s another view of the canyon with a lookout on the left.
