GRAND CANYON – DESERT VIEW DRIVE

GC001

 

Grand Canyon South Rim – Day One

 

Our first approach to the Grand Canyon’s South Rim (see the North Rim post here) was from the East.

Even before one enters the East Entrance of the Grand Canyon, one gets an appetizer view courtesy of the Little Colorado River Gorge.

As we drove on towards the East Entrance, we could still see how the Little Colorado Gorge cut through the landscape.

The East Entrance takes you down the Desert View Drive.  Today’s post will feature its views.  Here a map:
