Toroweap Point, AZ

Praktische info

Het duurt ongeveer drie uur om van Arizona Highway 389 naar het uitkijkpunt te reizen. Voertuigen met een hoge klaring zijn vereist en het is het beste om een kaart mee te nemen, want nee, er is geen mobiele dekking bij Toroweap Point. De Sunshine Route, bekend als Country Road 109, is de meest populaire toegang, maar de moeilijkere Main Street Route vanuit St. George is de meest schilderachtige, hoewel onbegaanbare tijdens de wintermaanden.

Photograph the Grand Canyon from Toroweap Point The rare canyon-side solitude found at Toroweap Point is just the beginning of what makes it a coveted vantage point for photographers. Additionally, the overlook is positioned in the middle of a relatively straight section of the Colorado River, delivering unobstructed views of the canyon in both directions. This presents the rare opportunity to capture both sunrise and sunset over the Colorado River from the same point.
