West Rim is the closest access to the Grand Canyon from Las Vegas, and therefore it was the shortest coach trip for us. There are two main scenic points of the Grand Canyon West rim, Eagle Point and Guano Point.

Which Rim to Visit at the Grand Canyon?

Three main areas can be experienced at The Grand Canyon : the South Rim, North Rim, or the West Rim, which includes Havasu Canyon and Grand Canyon West.
All depend on such factors as: the time of year you’re traveling, how much time you would like to spend, what kinds of activities you would like to take part in on your Grand Canyon adventure and even who you’re traveling with.

The Grand Canyon West Rim was beyond grand, it was magnificent!

    Lovely page! I enjoyed reading about the different trees, rather unusual ones that grow there! Your photo's are excellent, so clear, and the ones of the Hoover dam from the plane give me an idea of just how big that dam is.
