Watchtower at Desert View

Description Written by renowned Grand Canyon architect Mary Jane Colter, this manual is a response to questions about the sweeping 360-degree view from her 70-foot-tall Watchtower at Desert View. Before its construction, she spent six months investigating archaeology sites in the Four Corners region. Back at the canyon, Colter closely supervised the astounding re-creation of an ancient stone tower rising from the rim rock. In the pages of this book, we gain a rare glimpse in her own words of what inspired each masterful stroke of her design.
