About Grand Canyon, Phoenix
The Grand Canyon (Hopi: Ongtupqa; Yavapai: Wi:kaʼi:la, Navajo: Tsékooh Hatsoh, Spanish: Gran Cañón) is a steep-sided canyon carved by the Colorado River in Arizona, United States. The Grand Canyon is 277 miles (446 km) long, up to 18 miles (29 km) wide and attains a depth of over a mile (6,093 feet or 1,857 meters). The canyon and adjacent rim are contained within Grand Canyon National Park, the Kaibab National Forest, Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument, the Hualapai Indian Reservation, the Havasupai Indian Reservation and the Navajo Nation. President Theodore Roosevelt was a major proponent of preservation of the Grand Canyon area, and visited it on numerous occasions to hunt and enjoy the scenery. Nearly two billion years of Earth's geological history have been exposed as the Colorado River and its tributaries cut their channels through layer after layer of rock while the Colorado Plateau was uplifted. While some aspects about the history of incision of the canyon are debated by geologists, several recent studies support the hypothesis that the Colorado River established its course through the area about 5 to 6 million years ago. Since that time, the Colorado River has driven the down-cutting of the tributaries and retreat of the cliffs, simultaneously deepening and widening the canyon. For thousands of years, the area has been continuously inhabited by Native Americans, who built settlements within the canyon and its many caves. The Pueblo people considered the Grand Canyon a holy site, and made pilgrimages to it. The first European known to have viewed the Grand Canyon was García López de Cárdenas from Spain, who arrived in 1540.Wikipedia

Hot air balloon flights are meant to take in panoramic views and vistas of the surrounding natural beauty. That is why Verde Valley Balloons flies in the Cottonwood area, 20 miles south of Sedona, not in the Red Rocks area. To see the Red Rocks, we suggest taking a jeep tour. There's no better way to get up close and personal with the rock formations. But if you'd like to experience extraordinary views (depending upon the weather and wind direction) of Mingus mountain, the Verde River, the Prescott National Forest, Tuzigoot National Monument, Jerome, Cottonwood, or sites as far away as Sedona and even the San Francisco peaks at the base of the Colorado Plateau near Flagstaff, you will want to fly with Verde Valley Balloons in Cottonwood because you simply can't see those vistas anywhere else.

We took in the South side of the canyon. Well worth the drive, was lucky enough to arrive on a free park day, no entry fee! It was beautiful day to take in the grandeur of this park. I would need an extra week to begin to try and see everything.
Every once in a while something lives up to the hype. The Grand Canyon actually deserves a better name, something like The Incredibly Awesomely Amazingly Huge Canyon. It's stunning. You'll feel like you've landed on a foreign planet.
Colorado Plateau is the topography I have begun to shave with an erosion action in the Colorado, and you're also going to be able to make the overlap of a stratum from the Precambrian era to Permian period a hit of an eye. It's included in the Grand Canyon national park where a national park in an early stage of U.S. is one from the grand view as well as the value in which global history is kept. It was registered with the world's cultural and natural heritage in 1979.
Booked an air tour last month with my wife to explore the Grand Canyon while also visiting The Hoover Dam. Overall we had a great time and saw many wonderful things. I have posted a few pictures of some amazing views.
Had a fantastic time. Visited Las Vegas, Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon was breath taking. Worth seeing. Had the best time a few years ago. Definitely worth going to see the area.
