The Grand Canyon is one of Mother Nature’s incredible gifts to humanity, and one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Carved to a depth of more than a mile by the Colorado River over the course of millennia, the canyon is a truly awe-inspiring sight.
Few other places on our planet are as magnificent as the Grand Canyon. Standing near the canyon, it’s impossible not to feel dwarfed by its immense size and scale. Winding its way through 277 miles of the naturally beautiful Arizona desert, the Grand Canyon tells the story of nearly 2 billion years of Earth’s fascinating geological history.
The area surrounding the canyon is the ancestral home of several Native American cultures, including the Pueblo, Cohonina and Sinagua tribes. The Pueblo people considered the site a sacred place, and traditionally made pilgrimages there. Even today, several churches of diverse faiths offer religious services at Grand Canyon National Park.
