  • This is a great place for a sunset view. On the day we went in mid-April it was very windy but there were dozens of Turkey Vultures enjoying the breeze below us in the canyon. Very nice view.

  • Lipan Point is one of the overlooks along the Desert Rim Drive (aka East Rim Drive). The point offers a panoramic view from west to east across the Grand Canyon, and there is a sign on the fence...

  • As grand as it could ever be... the Grand Canyon truly deserve its name. It is magnificently grand and vast and awesomely scenic and picturesque. I have taken numerous photos and I can't get enough of it. We went to the South rim (Lipan and Mather point). Both has excellent view and photo ops! Love, love the south rim location. So much better than the west rim we visited 14 years ago (though they have the skywalk). I have to say.. you haven't seen Grand Canyon unless you've been to South rim. Bucket list ✔️.
  • At Lipan Point, you can see the rock bottom of the Grand Canyon, which was cut and sculptured by the winding and mighty Colorado River.
