And there is your reason! They want you to pay them to take a terrible picture! Is it that common for people to go around dropping cameras? I have an $800 camera, with a $600-$1200 lens attached to it, at any given time. I assure you, I take every precaution to ensure it doesn't get dropped since I cannot afford to replace it.

I would bet it's not about dropping cameras at all - it's about making another buck off the ole tourists.

Also note - if you have a rental car, going on unpaved roads does violate the rules for many rental car companies(for Hertz it was in Rule #5)


I will be in Flagstaff in mid-October and will visit the canyon, are any of the van tours worth it (versus driving yourself)? Thanks
