desert tower sketch


The Desert Tower was designed by Mary Colter and completed in 1933, located on the eastern side of the South Rim of the canyon. Inspired by towers of the Anasazi tribes, the stonework is a mix of rough and projected stones with a series of spiral stairs connecting the spaces held within the tower.
