desert view

This tower, built in 1930, rests on the edge at the east end of the canyon at a place called Desert View. We climbed a spiral stair case four stories, and at 7200 ft. elevation, it really took the wind out of us. We were two of the few english speaking tourists there. This place is a huge attraction for people all over the world.

It was built as a observation point and tourist attraction.
