Panoramas of the World

Grand Canyon VI

The Colorado dug itself deeply into the rocks of the Colorado Plateau over millions of years. An enormous canyon evolved, which today is part of one of the biggest nature miracles on Earth. Each year, about five million people visit this canyon in northwest Arizona.

The Canyon was declared a national monument as early as 1908. Eleven years later, it became a national park. Since 1975, the Grand Canyon National Park is the size that it is today. The canyon is between six and 30 kilometers wide and 450 kilometers long.

Most visitors watch it from the southern edge. That is where the panorama photos were taken. Some of the visitors dare their way down into the ravine. However, if you choose this adventure, at least one overnight stay is recommended. Unfortunately people die in the ravine again and again, because they underestimate the effort and heat.
