“There is of course no reason at all in trying to describe the Grand Canyon. Those who have not seen it will not believe any possible description. Those who have seen it know that it cannot be described…” Excerpt From: Michael Joseph Oswald. “Your Guide to the National Parks.” - the book I have been using to guide me …

Up at 5.45 am today to catch the dawn breaking over the canyon and to hike along the rim. We caught a bus to the start of the hike, 7 miles away at Hermit Point. David decided to stay on the bus and return as he had caught a glimpse of the nature of the fence between the footpath and the edge of the grand canyon - ie there was nothing at all for 95 …

    Mary Colter Suite: Worth it.

    Yes, you will pay (alot) to stay this close to the Canyon, but I felt it was worth it. It was my children's first visit to the Grand Canyon and I'm not sure if I'll return, so I decided to live it up. I reserved 11 months in advance and got the Mary Colter Suite on a weekend, one of only a few rooms with a balcony overlooking the Canyon. Well worth it to be able to set outside and look directly into the Canyon. The timing of the full moon gave us night views of the Canyon as well.
    The room itself was spacious with two queen-sized beds and nice-sized living room. My son slept on the living room sofa (which was not a pull out). The living room also had a round dinner table as well. The bathroom was gorgeous. There were two TVs in the room but we barely used them, as I spent us much time on the balcony as I could. The large balcony contained a round picnic table with four chairs and two cushioned chairs and a large storage bin. Free wifi.
    Staff we came in contact with were friendly but we didn't call on them much. There is no ice nearby - the only ice machine is in the basement which was a pain, but hey, this is a historic hotel.
    It was a short walk to the Bright Angel Trail and it was great to end a morning Rim Trail run right at the hotel with my wife looking down on me from the balcony.

    You'll get to see the Grand Canyon Village U.S. flag being raised and lowered right in front of you from your balcony and view the beautiful sunrise on the canyon in your PJs.
    You only live once - may as well live it up while visiting the Grand Canyon by staying in a suite at the El Tovar.
