Arizona Lodges: The High Country

A breathtaking tour of El Tovar, Grand Canyon Lodge and La Posada

From the depths of the Grand Canyon to the sculpted sandstone of the Colorado plateau, Northern Arizona is a land of uncommon beauty. Early in the 20th century, the Union Pacific and Santa Fe Railways built grand lodges to welcome those who journeyed across the country.

Three in Arizona reflect the grandeur of their surroundings and recall a bygone era: El Tovar, Grand Canyon Lodge and La Posada. These are the lodges of Arizona’s high country, and the subject of Eight’s production, “Arizona Lodges: The High Country.”
