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.

  • It is one of the most spectacular views on earth. Especially when you see it with the rise and fall of the sun. You can not find stuff like this any where else. It is must see at least once in your life time. You get lost in its beauty when you see it.

  • Grand canyon is a must-see place. I can just recommend to plan to spend some more time there. See the views from different spots. Walk some trail if possible. The experience will be much better!

  • 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.

  • One of the most beautiful spot on earth that I have ever seen. Colorful. Huge. It gives you that deep feeling of serenity.
