The sky was clear, the air was crisp, and the sun appeared on the horizon as scheduled. For the next 45 minutes, the colors became more and more brilliant in the canyon. It has been said many, many times, but sunrise at the Grand Canyon...More

We didn't stop at sunset but I understand why people recommend you do so. Lipan point provides sweeping views of the Canyon. Worth a short stop along your Desert View Drive

It’s a little hard to describe the views of the Grand Canyon except to say they are breathtaking. We were very fortunate to have spectacular weather and no crowds at all. A must see.

Here at Lipan, visitors can get several views of the Colorado River from Grand Canyon's rim. Such views are unique in the Canyon. Look for the rapids (though you won't see the three-story fall the river makes) and the delta which was once farmed.

We last visited Grand Canyon 10+ years ago. Either we missed Lipan Point last time, or it is a newer viewing point. The interesting features of this point somehow spoke to me in ways other Canyon views did not. Shallow areas, stone/rock that resembled living...More

You can see the Colorado river clearly at this view point. Don't just look down from the fence. If you walk a little bit to the right, there is an area where you can sit on the rock and appreciate the view with less people.

We took a guided bus tour and enjoyed it very much. i recommend going this route as you can focus on the sight seeing and not on the driving and parking.
