The lookout studio is a nice shop with photographs of the area. Pictures are of the "old days" in the canyon as well as a video. It has an exceptional view from the balcony outside. Worth a short stop by.

Great to get a look at a little history. Good for some excellent views of the Canyon. Great little store to browse in also. Worth walking along this part of the rim as there are great views and a few places to stop and browse

There is a ledge, unaccessible to humans, below the Lookout Studio seen best from the upper landing. There is a pair of California Condors who land and take off and "rest" on the ledge. A once in a lifetime sight!

This is very close to the Bright Angel lodging and perched right on the rim. Nice gifts and great views too. There are tiered outdoor "patios" out back to enjoy the views with seating on the stone walls.
