Inside the Tower

July 28, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Inside the Desert View Watchtower, located on the south rim of the Grand Canyon, are numerous pictographs and symbols of the Native American culture painted on the walls. The visual center is a mural of the Hopi Snake Legend by Hopi artist Fred Kabotie that describes their cultural connection to the Grand Canyon. This painting tells the story of a Hopi man who floated down the Colorado River through the canyon in a hollow log. And here is a man using his phone to record the depiction of this ancient story. The tower is 70 feet tall and offers a number of windows to look out to see the Grand Canyon. This structure, as are several others within the Park, was designed by architect Mary Colter in 1932.
