Worthy of a sunset after a day of wandering Jun 22, 2011
For $25, you can enter the park and take in the visitor's center. We got there late and didn't have a full day, but we did get a chance to wander the rim and take some really great pictures. We had about an hour and saw an elk. We got a spot to sit and watch the sun set in the west.

We hadn't planned as well as some of the other folks there who brought chairs, blankets, pizza, snacks, and their dogs, but my friend and I were comfy. In addition to the above mentioned items, consider bringing a sweater (once the sun sets, it gets quite chilly and the wind is quite audible).

Prior to arriving at the park, it is quite a drive in the middle of nowhere but scenic and serene. We left the park and needed gas. The station immediately outside the park was charging $4.69 for gas! We drove 25 miles and found gas for $3.99 and only filled up partially. Gas, at the time of our trip, was averaging about $3.45 in that area.

Souvenirs was also rather expensive nearby. Be prepared, wear the proper shoes and clothing, bring your own water and enjoy your time. Comparable to the Western Rim, the Southern Rim is surrounded by a national park and is highly populated and busy. The Western Rim is in the middle of the desert, has a better view and has the SkyWalk-but nothing else really around there.

Do your research about which Rim to visit and enjoy!
