I think the canyon actually gets prettier when the sun goes down. You have to take a bus out to the west end of the canyon, so we're on the bus with a bunch of other people, heading out to Hopi Point because I had heard that it was the best place to see the sunset. Then the bus driver repeated that claim, and immediately I can hear all the other passengers around me saying 'Let's go to Hopi Point! He says it's the best place' and my head is filled with visions of jockeying for space with 30 other people, so we decided to get off one stop early. We shared Powell Point with ONE other person. We could actually see Hopi Point from where we were, and the people were packed in like sardines!
