The Grand Canyon:
Grand Canyon is something which is difficult to describe in words. It is the most prominent tourist attraction in Arizona and attracts more than five million tourists every year. The road leading to the Grand Canyon gives an idea what is about to unfold. With River Colorado flowing along the canyon and some huge and steep gorges the site is a panoramic. The rocks here are around 1.8 billion years old. The Grand Canyon is 446 km long and 29 kms wide. The gorges are around a mile steep.
The area around the Grand Canyon has been developed into Grand Canyon National Park and is also one of the seven wonders of the world. The Grand Canyon is a mildly rising plateau and completely isolated. No phone signals work here and it’s very difficult to keep track of location and the way out once a wrong turn is made. The entire area is inhabited though Snakes and other reptiles can be seen crawling in the entire perimeter. The views from the South Rim are breathtaking and the visibility is 8-9 kms. A number of people can be seen hiking or trekking and driving to the forests in North Rim.
If you haven’t seen the Grand Canyon, you shouldn’t miss the breathtaking opportunity while you’re in Arizona. So book your flights to Phoenix for a brainstorming adventurous vacation.
