The Watchtower, Grand Canyon - USA

A few weeks ago Laura asked me if we could swap a card. I sent her an ocean view card from southern Portugal and she sent me this card from Grand Canyon in Arizona.

Desert View Watchtower, also known as the Indian Watchtower at Desert View, is a 70-foot (21 m)-high stone building located on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Designed by Mary Colter, the idea of this structure was to provide the widest possible view of Grand Canyon and harmonize it with its setting. Mary Colter was hired her in 1930 by the Fred Harvey Company to design a gift shop and rest area at Desert View.
