Mather Point - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT

A panorama over the Grand Canyon taken from Mather Point on the South Rim. There is a narrow ledge of rock that extends from the top of the cliff, and this is where I chose to stand to take the panorama. No room for mistakes then. Taken in spring, the image shows snow at the top of the canyon giving the ground a dusting of white. Stepping forward, the next landfall would be a mere 10 miles away.

Mather Point - FURTHER INFORMATION

Mather Point - Grand Canyon visitor guide showing a virtual tour of 'Mather Point' linked to an interactive map with local and travel information. 360° panoramas from Arizona.

Mather Point is a viewpoint on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, close to the Grand Canyon Village. At a height of 2170m, Mather Point offers panoramic views over the Grand Canyon, and, being so close to the village, is very popular. Just a short distance west from Mather Point is Yavapai Point, and further east are the trailhead of the South Kaibab Trail and Yaki Point.

Beyond the end of the rock shelf in the foreground is Skeleton Point, which is accessible along the South Kaibab Trail. Right of this is O'Neill Butte and then Cedar Ridge which leads to the trail head. Far in the distance is Bright Angel Canyon and the peaks of Buddha Temple (2159m) and Tiyo Point (2366m) near the North Rim and the Kaibab Plateau.
