Point Imperial Painted Desert Overlook
November 6, 2021
Point Imperial, the highest point on the Grand Canyon's North Rim at 8,803 feet (2,683 meters), overlooks the Painted Desert and the eastern end of the canyon that transforms ... as the narrow walls of Marble Canyon, visible only as a winding gash, open dramatically to become "grand". Layers of red and black Precambrian rocks, not visible at Bright Angel Point, add contrast and color. Part of the viewpoint is accessible.
Located in Arizona, Grand Canyon National Park encompasses 277 miles (446 km) of the Colorado River and adjacent uplands. The park is home to much of the immense Grand Canyon; a mile (1.6 km) deep, and up to 18 miles (29 km) wide. Layered bands of colorful rock reveal millions of years of geologic history. Grand Canyon is unmatched in the incomparable vistas it offers visitors from the rim.
