Last week, I posted about my experience visiting the Skywalk and Eagle Point in the Gran Canyon West. This a part of the main canyon located in the Hualapai Indian Reservation. The Hualapai are in charge of managing this piece of land and they have all the facilities in place for the visitor to have a great experience.
I mentioned how my mind was completely blown away by the enormous canyon. I had an idea in my mind of how it was supposed to look. But let me tell you, what I saw in front of me destroyed all my naïve dreams. The Grand Canyon is some serious work of nature.
I felt a little apprehensive because I read in numerous Internet forums how the view at the second viewpoint (Guano Point) surpasses what can be seen in the first stop (Eagle Point). I was like, how is this possible? Walking over the Skywalk was too good to be true. How can the next stop take a visitor to a more subliminal state of mind?
While riding the shuttle to Guano Point, I got an understanding f why people prefer the second view. The driver told us to prepare for 360 degrees views of the canyon. I can barely handle a lineal view (in terms of managing awesome beauty), how I was supposed to handle a spherical one.
Well, I don’t know if my sugar level dropped of what. I just know I was able to have lunch with the following view. Plus, I was relieved because I felt more comfortable hanging at the edge of the abysm (remember I was terrified at the first stop).
And things got better because at this point you are able to climb two rock promontories: one flat and the other pointing to the sky. Both of them give you the promised complete spherical views of the canyon. Simply amazing. Watch out!!! There is nothing between you and the canyon. So handle yourself with care.
Here are some photos so you can understand what I am talking about.
What do you think? Eagle or Guano Point? Let me know in the comments section below.
