Grand Canyon Nat. Park: Time-lapse Video from Yaki Point


Via Flickr:
Recorded on Sunday, June, 2nd, 2013 from Yaki Point on the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park. Clouds were passing over the canyon most of the day, but it did not rain.

This 45 second time-lapse video would take 20 minutes to watch if played back in real time.

Yaki Point, elevation: 7262 feet (2213 m) is a quiet place from which to enjoy sunset or sunrise.

Yaki Point and the S. Kaibab Trail Parking Lot are CLOSED to private vehicle traffic. Sightseers ride the free park shuttle bus to access this area. There are restrooms in both locations.

The Kaibab/ Rim Route (orange bus) provides transportation between the Grand Canyon Visitor Center, South Kaibab Trailhead, Yaki Point, Pipe Creek Vista, Mather Point, and Yavapai Geology Museum. This is the shortest scenic bus route and the only access to Yaki Point, the South Kaibab Trailhead and the Yavapai Geology Museum. Read more about free shuttle buses here:
