Yaki Point Snow, Grand Canyon-103

Yaki Point Snow, Grand Canyon-103

Beams of a setting sun spotlight a snow storm falling on the North Rim. Yaki Point, at the end of a 1.5 mile side road that starts 2 miles east of the US 180 road junction, near the national park entrance. Several years ago, the small parking area by the rim was deemed to small to cope with the increased volume of traffic, so entry to all private vehicles was stopped and now access is either on foot - by parking on the main road at a nearby picnic area - or by shuttlebus. Yaki is the easternmost stop on the Kaibab Trail Route that also serves Pipe Creek Vista and the Canyon View Information Plaza at Mather Point. The restriction also applies to the South Kaibab Trailhead, located half way along the side road.
