Grand Canyon National Park
A powerful and inspiring landscape, Grand Canyon overwhelms our senses through its immense size.
Unique combinations of geologic color and erosional forms decorate a canyon that is 277 river miles (446km) long, up to 18 miles (29km) wide, and a mile (1.6km) deep.
The North Rim of the park is open for the 2013 season.
