This expansive view of the canyon spreads from a sheer red-rock ridge that curves across the canyon below the point, great for blazing sunset colors, to the cross-canyon buttes and spires, and then to the sinuous ribbon of water flowing west. At sunset, the sheer cliff of the upper viewpoint morphs from yellowish limestone to fiery hues of red. Hikers often opt to catch the shuttle for the 2 miles to Monument Creek Vista and skip the Abyss, though the trailside views along the way are as spectacular as any. The return shuttle bus only stops at Mohave and Hopi points to take hikers back to the Village.
