Along the Inspiration Point Road is an outstanding example of how glaciers of the Ice Age moved the countryside around. A huge boulder sits beside the road in this almost universally volcanic rock landscape. It was transported some 15 miles from the mountains in the northeast corner of the park. Inspiration Point offers a spectacular view up the canyon to the Lower Falls and beyond. The river winds through the canyon about 900 feet below.
