Day Fifty Eight

In keeping with the Grand Canyon theme I inadvertently had this month here is a picture taken of the Native American art work inside the Desert View Watchtower designed by Mary Colter.  The painting you see on the wall was made by Hopi Indians.  The tower is a recreation of an Indian watchtower and now houses a store on the first floor with authentic Native American art and observation floors (2) above that.  The entire inside of the tower is painted to look like what an Indian house/shelter would have looked like.  It’s pretty cool.  It’s located on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon so if you’re in the area it’s worth a visit.  From the outside deck you will see the Colorado River as well as the “Painted Desert” which is stunning to say the least.  Do you have any great photos from your visit to a national park?  If so we’d love to see them, submit them to the Photo Journal and we will feature them on the site.

So who is next? Include your name, where you shot the picture, what the picture is of, and why you took it.
