BRIGHT ANGEL POINT
The view of the Grand Canyon from Bright Angel Point on the North Rim is perhaps my favorite view after Toroweap. One cannot view the magnificent scene before you and not be inspired by the richness of the white and red layers of stone as they glisten in the morning sunlight.
The North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park is the opposite of the South Rim in almost every way – it has much smaller crowds and it is located in a pine tree forest. It is cool in the summer and closed in the winter. It is over 1,000 ft higher than the South Rim, and the mood is slow and relaxing. The National Parks Services describes the North Rim of the Grand Canyon as A worthwhile trip for those who enjoy the road less traveled. The North Rim, or the Other Side of the Grand Canyon, is visited by only 10% of all Grand Canyon visitors.
