Join me on a tour of the world famous Grand Canyon West Rim This is an enjoyable ride through beautiful desert landscape to the Hualapai Indian reservation. The site is owned by the Native American tribe and they operate the transportation to the Grand Canyon West Rim spectacular scenery. There are three stops with fantastic views and here you can experience the land through the eyes of the natives and learn about their culture in this stunning countryside.
