Notes

In November, the weather can be changeable from rain to heavy snow to brilliant sunshine with fluffy clouds, all in the space of a couple of hours. Make sure you have raingear for yourself and your camera, along with cool-weather clothing.

Description

It was my last full day in the park, and I wanted to go to the eastern-most stop that the shuttles along the South Rim made. When I told the bus driver I wanted to go to Yaki Point, she looked at me doubtfully. It was snowing rather heavily, and she told me I probably wouldn't see a thing. I wanted to go anyway. Sure enough, large snowflakes and a curtain of gray surrounded me. After less than 5 minutes, though, the gray curtain parted to allow a little sunshine to light up the canyon scenery at this viewing area.
