2018— Starburst At Desert View

There is an interesting stone structure at Desert View in the eastern edge of the south rim of the Grand Canyon, a watchtower designed and built by architect Mary Colter in 1932 in the style of Ancestral Puebloan towers.  Visitors can climb the circular staircase inside the structure for stunning views of the canyon. In this view, the setting sun is visible as a starburst through a window of an adjoining crumbling structure, the watchtower on the right.
