Are you thinking of visiting the Grand Canyon in winter? Well, you are in for a real treat! While many people wouldn’t consider going in the winter, those who do are blessed with a site so magical you wouldn’t believe it.
When you want to escape the cold, pop into the Grand Canyon Visitor Center at Mather Point to see the 22 minute park film, Grand Canyon – a Journey of Wonder.It’s a great introduction to the canyon, especially for kids.
Be sure to climb the watchtower which is the highest point on the South Rim. I loved the design of this building which resembles an ancient Puebloan Ian watchtower.It was designed by Mary Elizabeth Coulter who designed many of the buildings within the park.
