What better place to cozy up to a warm fire than the Wilderness Lodge’s lobby fireplace? I’ve saved you a rocker front and center. Take a seat and relax as you enjoy the ambient sounds of this grand lobby space, Whispering Canyon, and guests passing by (is that a puppy?!?). Don’t forget to look up and appreciate the geologic fireplace which is meant to mimic the rock structure and strata of the Grand Canyon from rim to river, representing more than a billion years of geologic history! If you look carefully (and view in high definition), you may spot fossilized plants and animals in the layers. Imagineers used more than 95 colors of paint to achieve the magnificent effect. Of course, you can also just gaze into the fire and watch the dancing flames as your stress melts away.
