    Sunset views!!!

    Our hotel was right here, so we walked over one night and were not disappointed. Crazy sunset views without a crowd. Easy walk down some stairs and plenty of space to wander around.

    Photographers must stop and see this.

    Come at sunset for incredible colors of Glen Canyon and the dam. Its a fairly easy trip to the overlook from the parking lot.
