A double rainbow appears along the south rim of the Grand Canyon in this breathtaking panorama captured at Pima Point along Hermit Road.
Pima Point is one of the best places in this legendary national park to see and hear the echoing rush of the Granite Rapids below. From this magical spot, a paved trail accessible to bicyclists and wheelchair users continues toward Hermit's Rest, a historic hiker's shelter built in 1914 and named in honor of the famous Canadian prospector (and hermit), Louis Boucher.
