Colorado River from Toroweap Point

Colorado River from Toroweap Point
1965, probably late summer. An old family slide of a now much-photographed vantage point. This area, now part of Grand Canyon National Park, was pretty remote then! It's famous for the ca. 3000' (1000 m) drop to the river below.

Great, and probably the only place in the world with such a drop. May be a slide, but thanks for digging it out and giving it new life.

Thanks, everyone! This is one of those places I'd like to get back to with the digital camera. Haven't been there in close to 40 years at this point.

Dizzying indeed. The area is now part of Grand Canyon Nat'l Park (at the time it was Grand Cyn Nat'l Monument), but AFAIK it's still reached by 80 miles of graded dirt roads! The nearest town of any size is St. George, Utah.
