Watchtower Window

 

The tiny windows of the tower let in a minimal amount of light which adds to the cave- like, mystical atmosphere of the space. Experiencing the multiple levels and circular balconies and the hundreds of prehistoric images inundates the viewer with an overwhelming sense of the southwest.

I can't tell by what you've written, Elizabeth, if you were able to go inside? I sure hope so. What a delight. I would love to see it one day.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes, the main floor has a gift shop, and you can climb up to the upper levels. It's really amazing inside. And I think we got our best Canyon photos from the upper balconies.

Super image
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much!!
I was trying to work out if that mushroom thin was on the window or inside...then I saw your reply to Robbyne. Well spotted E
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: You're the only one that's mentioned the mushroom - and it's the whole reason I took the photo!!! smile There wasn't much on the wall inside there- but the mushroom painting- and the sunlight hit it just perfectly!

Yes, I can imagine the mystical atmosphere inside of the tower- and then a feel of freedom to look out and to enjoy the overwhelming view on the Gran Canyon. What an eldorado for photographers like you both!
