Like Mary Colter's other canyon buildings, Lookout Studio was modeled after stone dwellings of the Southwest Pueblo Native Americans. Made of rough-cut Kaibab limestone, with a roof that mirrors the lines of the rim, the studio blends into its natural surroundings. Inside, it houses a small souvenir shop and a tiny back porch that offers spectacular canyon views.

A stone stairway snakes below Lookout Studio to another terrace, which is the site of the popular ranger-led Condor Talk . Take a moment to look around – you might just see one of these big-winged creatures swooping past or chilling out nearby.
