The Indian Watchtower, Desert View, Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona.

Built on the very brink of the Canyon wall. The Indian Watchtower rises from a twenty-foot foundation of huge Canyon boulders. Prehistoric prototypes were carefully studied, and this Watchtower though not a replica of any one ruin, was copied closely from the best examples of prehistoric Indian towers. At its base is a huge Kiva built of the same gray weathered rock. The Tower and Kiva have many large windows, affording limitless views of this vast, colorful region.
