Grand Canyon, Day 3

Just before dark last night we were greeted by two Mule Deer out our front window.

This morning we drove the Jeep farther east along the South Rim, beyond the bus route to Desert View near the East Entrance Station where there is a historic watchtower.

The tower was built in 1930. We were able to climb up to the top and look out over the canyon. Gift shop on the ground floor.
