    • Reason 1: Awesome Landscape!
      • The Grand Canyon is one of the best examples of erosion anywhere in the World. It is 277 miles long, 18 miles wide and 1 mile deep!
    • Reason 2: Rampaging River! The Colorado river, all 277 miles of it, winds its way through the Grand Canyon. It continues to erode the steep sides as it moves. It is great for activities like white water rafting.
    • Reason 3: All those rocks! All three rock types can be found here, igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary. They were formed as a result of glaciation, tectonic action and river process.
