Grand Canyon's South Rim, 2023

In September, 2023, I spent almost two weeks in northern Arizona state to explore the south rim of the Grand Canyon and to participate in a landscape photography workshop near Page city.

After flying to Phoenix city in Arizona state, I stayed one night to rest. On the next day, I drove for several hours to the Grand Canyon Village where I checked into the Maswik Lodge. I also stayed at the Yavapai Lodge during my visit. I checked the weather forecast, shuttle bus schedule, and planned excursions to many view points along the south rim.
