FLASHBACK: In 1987, Long before Karen and Lee Duquette became the two RV Gypsies, they flew through The Grand Canyon with Grand Canyon Airlines, then they explored Hopi Point on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon in Arizona. They also went white water rafting through the canyon to a waterfall.

Hopi Point located in Arizona's Grand Canyon National Park is the northernmost spot on this part of the south rim, and the first point where much more of the western Grand Canyon comes into full perspective - another 20 miles, since the Colorado begins a big bend northwards, allowing views all the way to Havasupai Point and the Great Scenic Divide. Hopi Point has a fenced viewing area next to the road, and a vista over the canyon centered on Dana Butte, a flat mesa 2,000 feet below the overlook. Because of the wide-ranging, unobstructed views.
