Another spectacular point for watching sunset, Mohave Point offers excellent views of the Colorado River deep in the canyon below. From here you can also see the Salt Creek, Granite, and Hermit rapids.

Below this viewpoint, 'The Alligator' named by Emery Kolb points across the Colorado River to the 'Tower of Set', named by painter Thomas Moran. Next to these are the Horus and Osiris temples. To the left of these, you will see the 'Tower of Ra'. Off to the right, 'Isis Temple'.
