PHOTOS: Grand Canyon Sunrise is Magic

I woke up at 4:15 in the morning. Yes, that early! I left my camp site at 4:35. The first shuttle bus was at 4:30 and I reckoned it’s gonna pass by Mather Campground at 4:45. It turned out, my guess was right. šŸ˜œ

I was told that there’s no such thing as the best place to see the sunrise at the Grand Canyon. The eastern overlooks / points are all good spots for sunrise, specifically the Yavapai Geology Museum, Mather Point and Yaki Point.

I went to Mather Point. And here’s what the sunrise looks like from there.

Photographing the sunrise by facing it is a challenge because the Grand Canyon view in front of you isn’t visible.

Or maybe, my camera is just crap? LOL… šŸ˜€

After the sunrise, continue walking East of Mather Point.

If you’ve got water and food with you already, continue your hike all the way to Yaki Point.

If you don’t want to continue hiking, follow the path that takes you back to the Visitor’s Center.

NOTE:
Mather Point can be dangerous (or anywhere in the rim). A day after I left the Grand Canyon, a tourist slipped on the rim, fell and died. I’m not against taking photos in places that are risky (I do it myself) but I want you to be very, very careful before posing for a selfie.
