The Park Service conducts a bus tour along the West Rim Drive, which is closed to autos. Busses leave every 15 minutes from just below our cabin at Bright Angel Lodge, making stops at eight major overlook points along the way.

We spent Tuesday afternoon on the tour, getting off at each stop (we skiped one), taking pictures for 15 minutes, and then catching the next bus on to the next stopping point.
