We actually walked part of this trail twice. Once on Sept 18th, after picking up the R2R2Rers and then again Sept 20 before heading to the winding road up to Cape Royal before heading back to Phx.
It really is quite the trail, not only for the views but you have to walk up a good pace or down a good pace depending. Of course, the scenery is incredible every which way you look. Saturday nite we walked out on the east side of the trail to get some sunset photos including with the earth's shadow (a new term to me).
Monday morning we missed the sunrise so after breakfast we went out on the west side point of the trail and walked back to the "oh my God" view cabins. It was a lovely morning with a few Fraleys floating around. I particularly like the area that you take steps to where you can look through windowless spaces that frame your view.
Here is a short video from the west point of Bright Angel Point Trail: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mDyRe0I-Ft8
