The Grand Canyon is not only huge but really shows how amazing nature can be. Formed by the Colorado River slowly cutting away over the centuries, it looks different from every vantage point with its amazing variety of colors and types of rock throughout. I can see why people say that every American should make at least one trip to see this natural wonder. (2005)

There are tons of trails running down toward the floor of the canyon, some of which you can see here. They are only recommended for people who can endure a hard overnight climb so my parents and I certainly weren’t going to try!
