Catch epic sunsets from the last stop on the North Rim Road. See Angel's Window and Wotan's Throne on the short hike to the view point.

Park and walk the short 0.5 mile hike to the view point. Get there early and stay a little while to watch the sun drop. The North Rim gets drastically less visitation, so expect to enjoy the view with only a handful of people.
