The Grand Canyon
Transcript of The Grand Canyon
The area around the Grand Canyon became a national monument on January 11, 1908 and was designated a national park on February 26, 1919.
The Grand Canyon itself, including its extensive system of tributary canyons, is valued for the spectacular combination of large size, depth, and the exposed layering of colorful rocks dating back to Precambrian times. It was created through the incision of the Colorado River and its tributaries.
When visiting the Grand Canyon, adventurers want to experience all that the local area has to offer.
Grand Canyon Village
Grand Canyon Village is the most popular entryway into the park. It consists of multiple lodging sources and sigh-seeing views.
Bright Angel Trail
The Bright Angel Trail is considered the park’s premier hiking trail. Well maintained, graded for stock, with regular drinking water and covered rest-houses, it is without question the safest trail in Grand Canyon National Park.
A series of beautiful and photogenic waterfalls can be found on Havasu Creek, a tributary to the Grand Canyon. The water flows out of limestone, which gives it a pleasing blue-green hue. The waterfalls have created large plunge pools that are clear, deep and inviting.
Grand Canyon Skyfall
The Grand Canyon Skywalk is a transparent horseshoe-shaped cantilever bridge. In addition to admission, visitors may purchase professional photographs of their visit to the Skywalk in the gift shop.
The Grand Canyon's Success
Grand Canyon National Park is the United States' 15th oldest national park. Its success has increased over the years due to continuous tourism. Thousands of families and couples visit every year, and even several times a year. It has numerous activities to offer to its customers which then contributes to its great reputation and 467 million dollars of income.
