Grand Canyon: Proof that Nature Rocks! (35 Pics)

March 22nd, 2011 Permalink

No matter how many times you gaze at the gorgeous Grand Canyon in Arizona, it will look slightly different depending upon the play of sunlight and shadows on the mutlicolored rock walls. Being 277 miles long, about a mile deep, and up to 18 miles wide, there are almost limitless places to take photos. The Colorado River is believed to have carved out the steep canyon over 17 million years ago. As one of the world’s most spectacular natural attractions, Grand Canyon National Park has more than 5 million visitors per year. It’s a finalist in the New 7 wonders of nature competition. The Grand Canyon is an outdoor adventurers delight and we highly recommend visiting it at least once during your life. Believe it or not, seeing the the power and grandeur of nature at the Grand Canyon can change your life. We love the Grand Canyon and we love these pics!
