You can drive around both the north and south rims easily. Make sure you pick the south in the afternoon and North in the morning for best light. If you gave time, take a tour through the canyon floor.

I've never been to the southwest before. This has to be my favorite place visited. Seeing the ruins at White House and Spider Rock made me feel spoiled and privileged. I cannot begin to understand the life lived here....intelligent, scrappy, spiritual. I am humbled.

HI, Book the tour with Thunderbird Lodge. The lodge is owned by the Navajo. It's good to support them. If you're going to stay at a hotel don't stay at the lodge. I thought the food at their restaurant wasn't very good... More
