After the beautiful sites of Eagle Point, we drove another couple of miles along the West Rim to Guano Point. We were served a barbecue lunch at Guano Cafe and it was much better than the place's name would lead you to expect!
Guano Point was named after a old mining operation where an aerial tramway was built in order to mine nitrogen-rich bat guano for fertilizer from Bat Cave. Mining ceased in 1960, but remnants of the tramway remain as historic relics.
The views from Guano Point were even better than Eagle Point!
