During our Grand Canyon vacation we rented a cabin walking distance to a great view of the North Rim. We visited Point Imperial, San Francisco Peaks and Angels Window where one can get a glimpse of the Colorado River.
For more scenic wonders, the South Rim of the Grand Canyon is a day drive (300 miles) southeast of Las Vegas in Arizona. The canyon, carved by the Colorado River, is one mile deep, more than 200 miles long, and varies in width from four to 18 miles. The South Rim is open to visitors year round and features walking trails and mule trips. It also has restaurants, lodging, and a visitor's center.
Here is a regional MAP for traveling from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon. For educational information visit:
