Grand Canyon National Park, Ageless Tree Stands Guard.

Grand Canyon National Park, Ageless Tree Stands Guard. The Grand Canyon is the United States’ 15th oldest national park. Named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979.  The park is located in northwestern Arizona. The park’s central feature is the Grand Canyon, a gorge of the Colorado River.  It is because of the geological beauty that it is considered one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. The park covers 1,217,262 acres.   There is 1,901.972 sq mi. of unincorporated area in Coconino and Mohave counties.  Unique combinations of geologic color and erosional forms decorate a canyon that is 277 river miles (446km) long, up to 18 miles (29km) wide, and a mile (1.6km) deep. Grand Canyon overwhelms our senses through its immense size.  The ageless tree has stood guard since Precambrian Time

The Grand Canyon, is valued for its combination of size, depth, and exposed layers of colorful rocks.  The canyon itself was created by the incision of the Colorado River and its tributaries after the Colorado Plateau was uplifted.  It was formed during Precambrian Times

The primary public areas of the park are the North and South Rims of the Grand Canyon itself. The rest of the park is extremely rugged and remote.  Many places are only accessible by pack trail and backcountry roads. Only the Navajo Bridge near Page connects the rims by road in Arizona.  Otherwise, the two rims of the Canyon are connected via the Mike O’Callaghan–Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge and the Hoover Dam

The park headquarters are at Grand Canyon Village. This entrance is at the south entrance to the park.  The south entrance has one of the most iconic views of the Grand Canyon.  Park accommodations are operated by Xanterra Parks and Resorts.  For more information about the park and how to make reservations go to
