While Grand Canyon National Park’s expansive vistas leave visitors awestruck during the day, it’s the amazing sunsets and starry skies that captures their attention at night. During July and August, spectacular sunsets like this one mark the end of the day. This picture was taken from Mather Point on the South Rim of the park as the last glowing rays of the setting sun illuminate the canyon. Photo by M.Quinn, National Park Service.
