Sunset at Wotan's Throne - Cape Royal

Standing at an elevation of about 7600 feet, Wotan's throne is I believe one of the most magnificent views of the Grand Canyon, located in Cape Royal on the North Rim. Whether you go there at Sunset or Sunrise, you will be amazed at the lights and the majestic view you get. The distant horizon which is basically the plateau of the south rim, Grand Canyon, is perfectly horizontal and gives the illusion that the Wotan's throne and the sky at the horizon are two different frames stick together.

As we (Tour group of Mark Metternich) came here and settled our camera, the sunlight falling through the gaps in the clouds, made distinct rays passing down the edge of the mountains of the right. The scene was really majestic.
