Natural Sounds

Natural sounds are an important part of Grand Canyon National Park. Rustling winds in the canyons and the rush of waters are the heartbeat and breath of some of our most valuable resources. (It may take a few seconds for the sounds to load.)

"Mountains of music swell in the river,
Hills of music billow in the creeks...
While other melodies are heard
In the gorges of the lateral canyons.
The Grand Canyon is a land of song."

- John Wesley Powell
