Journey to Indian Garden at the Grand Canyon South Rim

The Bright Angel Trail is among the most popular trails at the Grand Canyon. It winds down deep into the canyon, all the way to the Colorado River. For most, the trek to the bottom is beyond reach, but setting the Indian Garden oasis as your target is a respectable goal that offers the rewards of rejuvenation and refreshment.

Our Favorite Overlooks at the Grand Canyon South Rim

The Grand Canyon South Rim has many different overlook points, most easily accessed by shuttle. There are three different colored shuttle routes that cover different areas of the park, and on this trip, I visited many of the stops off the red line to Hermit's Rest.

Few roads in Arizona have as much variety in landscape, flora and recreational activities as State Route 89A. Stretching from Flagstaff to Prescott, segments of this road are considered a must do for anyone seeking some of the most scenic views found in Arizona outside of the Grand Canyon. Today we decided to hop in the car for a day trip and explore some of this stretch of road that we usually only see passing by.
