Must Visit Attraction in Grand Canyon East Rim
The Little Colorado River Gorge
The Little Colorado River Gorge is Nik Wallenda’s“Grand Canyon”where he walked across the Canyon on a cable.It is located on Navajo Indian Tribal Lands.It is the controversial area where a proposed resort may be built beginning in 2018.Currently the Navajo Tribe is split on the decision to build on“sacred”land and the Hopi Tribe,who expects respect for their sacred sites,is totally against the proposal.You can drive along the gorge as you drive on State Route 64 between the east entrance to the South Rim and the town of Cameron,Arizona.There are two view areas;one with rails.The one with rails is a fee area and the other one is not.The fee is minimal and well worth the price to get the view.
Cameron Trading Post
Cameron Trading Post is located in Cameron near the junction of State Route 64 and US 89.It offers lodging as well as dining and simply a place to stop and rest from your travels for a few minutes.The Native American Arts and Crafts are displayed throughout the store.Most of the items are for sale.You might also see a Navajo woman demonstrating how to weave a rug.
