Millions of people from all over the world flock to this gorgeous work of nature. This 277 mile long stretch of red rock canyon gets up to 18 miles across and one mile deep.

Daredevil hikers high around the North and South Rim of this spectacular piece of scenery year round. The bravest of the brave set up camps and stay a while to live amidst the glory of nature.

Grand Canyon

Truly the Grand Canyon speaks for itself.

And what a story it tells. This art has been millions of years in the making. As the powerful colorado river snaked through the dry, deserts land, it carved its drive. This awesome battle of the elements has left the Earth scarred in its splendor.

For the best deals on hotel, should you chose to have a less wild trip, its best to go in late August for the summer experience. The Grand Canyon doesn’t disappoint any time of the year, but it is particularly awe-inspiring in the summer.

Come see the waters of the Colorado river, whether they be green or red or blue depending on where you are, play against the imposing wall of red rock.
