Grand Canyon National Park Webcam
A great way to see the current weather conditions in Grand Canyon National Park is to view the Grand Canyon webcam (click image to view).
The webcam is located at Yavapai Point on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. In addition to the webcam, Yavapai Point is also the location of the historic Yavapai Observation Station.
A new geology exhibit at Yavapai Point explains the deposition of the rock layers, the uplift of the Colorado Plateau, and the carving of the Grand Canyon.
If you are interested in seeing and identifying the various landmarks from Yavapai Point, the National Park Service has provided you with this image of visible Grand Canyon landmarks.
