I found these painting on the walls of this Watchtower, built around 1930 on the edge of the Grand Canyon.


  1. Kauniita kuvia... Mielenkiintoista historiaa...!
    Maalaukset ovat varmaan yhtä vanhoja kuin rakennelma...?

  2. Beautiful drawings and the countryside is wonderful.

    Thank you for sharing these Michael.

  3. The Desert View Watchtower, constructed in 1932 as a replica of a prehistoric Indian tower, commands a magnificent view of the Grand Canyon, the Painted Desert to the east and the San Fransico Peaks to the south. This 70 foot (21 meter) tower is the highest point on the South Rim. The interior walls of the tower feature murals by Hopi artist Fred Kabotie.
