Grand Canyon

The most iconic National Park in the United States – the Grand Canyon – is also considered one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World.

It took the Colorado River millions of years to carve through the land, gradually creating a canyon that’s 1 mile deep, 277 miles long, and 15 miles wide. Views from the canyon are stunning, exposing the colorful layers of rock below the earth’s surface, and trails that descend into the canyon exhibit its geological wonder.

Perhaps President Teddy Roosevelt said it best in 1903 when checking the Grand Canyon off his bucket list, “It is beyond comparison—beyond description; absolutely unparalleled through-out the wide world”.
