Grand Canyon 3-D Tour



Boysag Point to Havasu Creek and S B Point
Grand Canyon Miles 152 to 160


3-D view of the
          Grand Canyon - centered at Mile 154

   View to the west-southwest with Sinyala Canyon in the lower left corner and Havasu Canyon above it. Mt. Sinyala is an isolated remnant of the South Rim, and can be seen between the two canyons. To the north (right) of the Colorado River, Boysag Point (foreground) and S B Point (near top edge) are part of the North Rim.

   The river continues in a narrow gorge. The Bright Angel Shale remains below river level and thus the massive Redwall/Muav Limestone cliff rises straight up from the edge of the river. The large flat area is the Esplanade, which separates the deep inner gorge and the outer rims.

   Here in the western part of the Grand Canyon the Watahomigi Formation, the lowest member of Supai Group, forms a distinct slope in-between the Supaiís upper layers and the underlying sheer cliff of the Redwall/Muav limestones.

   View to the west-southwest with Havasu Creek in the lower left corner and Yumtheska Point (South Rim) on the left edge. The North Rim is on the right side of the picture with S B Point extending off into the distance.

   Havasu Creek is another popular hike for rafting groups. The canyon itself is somewhat like a green oasis sandwiched between vertical cliffs. Havasu Creek is usually a light blue color due to dissolved limestone.
