Sunset from Plateau Point

Grand Canyon National Park

Sunset over the Grand Canyon and Colorado River, from Plateau Point. It's a 12-mile roundtrip hike to reach this viewpoint located 3,000 feet below the South Rim. The river is 1,300 feet below and in the distance is Horn Creek Rapid at mile 90.8 on the river. The rapid is rated as a 7 to 9, and at lower water, this rapid forms very large waves and is considered one of the most difficult in the canyon. The Grand Canyon section of the Colorado River, like several other big-water Western rivers, uses a scale of 1-10 for rapids, 10 being the most difficult.

My hiking partners and I hiked a couple more miles before sunset exploring along the Tonto Plateau. After sunset, we made the long hike back in the darkness to the South Rim, and we were the only hikers on the trail. Near the top of the trail, we had a chance encounter with a mountain lion who hurriedly crossed our path. Just another great day at the Grand Canyon.
