Joshua Tree Forest
Along the roadway to the West Rim, you will see part of the impressive Joshua Tree forest within the Mojave Desert. This unique plant was acknowledged by the Indians for its beneficial residential properties. Its challenging fallen leaves were utilized to make sandals and baskets, while the blossom buds, and the raw seeds, were included in the Indian diet regimen. The neighborhood tribes have referred to it as “humwichawa.” Mormon immigrants around the mid-19th century called the tree as they went across the Colorado River. It was named after the biblical Joshua owing to the outstretched limbs of the tree that directed the tourists westwards.

The World Famous Grand Canyon Skywalk
The horse-shoe-designed Grand Canyon Skywalk at Grand Canyon West is 10 feet wide and extends around 70 feet over the end of the canyon. From the bridge, you can see down 4,000 feet to the ground below. The Skywalk is a wonder that visitors travel from across the globe to see.

Grand Canyon Skywalk tickets are optional and available to purchase when booking your tour. The tour price does not include Skywalk tickets.
Some say this is the most unique perspective of the Grand Canyon. Here, you get a 360-degree view of the Grand Canyon West Rim. Nevertheless, be cautious as there are no barriers. Look down at the remnants of a cable car that stretched across the canyon to a bat guano mine. The Guano Point gift shop at viewpoint of the canyon has Native American crafts as well as jewelry.
The history of Guano Point stems from a nitrogen-rich guano cavern active in the 1930s. The U.S. Guano Firm bought the land and made a tramway system for removal. It was developed from the mine to the existing Guano Point. It went across the river with a span of 7,500 feet. The cave’s sources were dried up in 1959.
The Hualapai Tribe
Hualapai means “people of the tall pines.” Additionally, the Hualapai reservation overlaps 108 miles of the Colorado River and the southerly end of the Grand Canyon. The tribe members add up to only approximately 2,300 who the majority of live in Peach Springs.
The Hualapai historically stayed in the base of the Hualapai Mountains, close to Kingman, Arizona. Their traditional homeland was more extensive than their current reservation.
