One of the finest ways to enjoy the rim walk is to follow it from the park headquarters to the village on a moonlight night. It's easy to see the walk as it winds thorough the pinyon forest of the rim, while the canyon is bathed in shadow and light.
If you're lucky, you can see a lightening storm on the North Rim on your walk. Watching the lighting hit its target without the sound of booming thunder is an eerie and yet magical way to spend an evening.
You don't have to disappear inside when the sun goes down. Take a moonlit walk on a warm summer evening and you'll discover a whole other side to the Grand Canyon.
