Watchtower Inside

 

Looking out to the observation deck on the 2nd floor of The Watchtower, from inside on the spiral staircase.  This view is looking north north east - toward the Little Colorado River Gorge and the Echo Cliffs.

Looking out at the lookers taking advantage of the shade.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - well, it was a chilly, windy day - so they were actually being very brave!

An incredible view out across the Canyon. Looks like it could be a bit nippy outside?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: You are so right- quite chilly and windy!
That's very cool. We get to look out at the window during our tour.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile Couldn't let you miss this view! smile

This is fun Elizabeth and the natural frame looks quite quirky against the one you added. All in all a fine photo.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: So glad you think so! I wish the railing weren't in the image - but Frank hadn't brought his tools to remove it!
That is awesome, Elizabeth. The people show the perspective of the enormity of the landscape. A superb shot.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much Pauline! One shot I'm glad I had people in!
I especially like the reflection and the left edge of the window showing.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks Jacquelyn - it worked alright!
I like the dark edge framing
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks Chantal!
Nicely framed,Elizabeth, it looks good.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Frank! So do you! smile X
Love it Elizabeth...
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Aderonke!
It must be an unforgettable place to visit
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Truly, truly!!
Another lovely day in the West...
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Indeed, Larry!
Certainly worth the climb up there, did you and Frank go out on to the deck?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh yes it's worth it! And yes we did! Though the sky was pretty flat so we didn't get great pics of the Canyon from there. However - when he was here in October - we got some of our best shots from that deck. Several we've posted!
All along the watchtower princes kept the view. Great song smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: OMG why do people keep quoting Jimi Hendrix?! smile
What a fabulous view Elizabeth!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Richard - it's really fabulous to be there!
BIIIIIG country!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: That's the West!

I have never been here but your images make we want to check it out for sure, must put this on my list of things to see
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh yes! Most people only go to Grand Canyon Village - where the hotels are, and hike around from there... but a "short" 25 miles east gets a whole different experience! You must go!
