(5962 x 2127) Bright Angel Point on the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park. Arrival at Bright Angel Point by the Grand Canyon Lodge on the North Rim places you on the edge of a vastness of scenery, time, and opportunity. The view confirms the tremendous uplift that has occurred, leaving the canyon’s North Rim 1,000 feet/300 meters higher than the South Rim. Walk slowly and pace yourself; Bright Angel Point is 8,148 feet/2,484 meters above sea level (5,780 feet/1,762 meters above the Colorado River) NPS photo Michael Quinn.
