Turn around to look at the parking lot. The facilities here in the canyon were built to accommodate 30,000 visitors a year; the average is now 300,000. There are many times when the parking lot fills and cars must wait for a space. Look along the sidewalk to your left to the covered portion of the walk. This was a small gas station. The buildings across the narrow service road were, and still are, for equipment and maintenance.
