The Grand Canyon is one of the seven wonders of the natural world. It is both magnificent and awe inspiring. Vast in size and just a wonder to look at, the Grand Canyon is 277 miles long, about 18 miles at its widest point, and around 6,000 feet deep. This National Park is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the world. Described as an overwhelming experience, it is hard to prepare for this impressive sight. The enormous canyon is millions of years in the making, carved by the Colorado River. Nowhere else on Earth displays so many volumes of the plant’s history in such pristine condition.

In fact, there are some spots where the rock layers exposed in the canyon display over two billion years of geologic history.
Even though the Grand Canyon is not the widest, deepest, or longest canyon on the planet, it is considered by most the “grandest” canyon of them all. With its magnificent and unsurpassed vistas on the planet, it leaves its visitors with a sense of wonder. If visiting, you will definitely want to take some pictures and videos.
