Along the way to Cape Royal, one of those “must see” spots when visiting the North Rim, is a small pull off for Roosevelt Point. It’s not the most visited or photographed point along the rim, but I decided to stop for a while and see what I could see.
The walk out is a short one, and one that gives you big hope. There’s a cool point walking north, and at first it looks like the dirt path leads you right out to it. But as you make your way along the path you find a dead end facing the point. Total bummer. Actually, I tried to find a path that would go further, but eventually realized, “I don’t think I’m supposed to go out there……”
The pull off and visit to the point are right on the way to or from Cape Royal. I think it’s worth a few minutes to explore the views and take in a location that isn’t photographed or visited as often as many of the “popular” points along the canyon. If nothing else, you’re likely to have the point all to yourself! And that’s a rare thing along the Grand Canyon!
All of the shots at Roosevelt Point were taken with my Canon EOS 40D. I was using the 10-22mm EFS lens, and each HDR was a 3 exposure, 0, +2, & -2. All processed from Lightroom 3 into Photomatix and then back into Lightroom 3.
