A short (0.5 mi.) but interesting trail leaves the Grand Canyon Lodge and heads out to
Bright Angel Point. We did it twice, the first day was cloudy and rain over the south rim
and the pictures were not the best.
Bright Angel Point is on a peninsula which sticks out into Bright Angel canyon. The peninsula has The Transept on the west and Roaring Springs Canyon on the east. Bright Angel Canyon starts on the north rim and runs diagonal across the Colorado river and ends at the Bright Angel Lodge on the south rim. Now that I confused you, the important thing is that on a clear day you should see the Bright Angel Lodge by sighting down the canyon from Bright Angel Point. Due to clouds and rain we could never see that point on the south rim.
