Bill, Your edit didn't change - I think you meant South Rim. But who cares, you knew where you were at. It's the Desert View Tower.

We were camped at Mather CG in the NP. If you travel east along the rim about 25 miles, you end up the Desert View Tower. A really scenic trip. The next day we went west - there was so much rain I thought the canyon would fill up.

Did you go all the way to the top of Desert View Tower? Call me chicken but I didn't get to the last top level...too much height for me! Especially looking down out the window on the Canyon side. We went last Fall and are returning late April of this year. Going to stay at "Trailer Village" (boy, the name just makes ya want to stay there, huh ). How did you like Mather?

Mather was great. It's a "must return" place for me. I did go to the top of Desert View Tower, but the scenery is fantastic even if you stay at ground level.

The sight distances amazed me. I'm not familiar with wide open west. One of the reader boards at desert View referenced a plateau area that was 90 miles away. That's like standing in Cincinnati and seeing Indianapolis.
