The Grand Canyon


What else can you say?....ITS GRAND!!!

Grand Canyon National Game Preserve (established in 1906), became Grand Canyon National Park by an Act of Congress in 1919. Grand Canyon National Park covers 1,218,375 acres in northwestern Arizona. It includes 105 miles of the most colorful part of the Grand Canyon of the Colorado River.

Width and depth of the canyon vary from place to place. At the South Rim, near Grand Canyon Village, it's a vertical mile (about 5,000 feet / 1,524 m) from rim to river, or 7 miles / 11.3 km by trail. At its deepest, it is 6,000 vertical feet / 1,829 m from rim to river. The width of the canyon at Grand Canyon Village is 10 miles / 16 km (rim to rim), though in places it is as much as 18 miles / 29 km wide.

A trip to the bottom of the canyon and back (on foot or by mule) is a two day journey. Rim to rim hikers generally take three days one way to get from the North Rim to the South Rim. A trip through Grand Canyon by raft can take two weeks or longer. Experienced backpackers have spent weeks in the more remote areas of the canyon.

Grand Canyon owes its distinctive shape to the different rock layers in the canyon walls. Each responds to erosion in a different way: some form slopes, some form cliffs, some erode more quickly than others. The vivid colors of many of these layers are due mainly to small amounts of various minerals. Most contain iron, which imparts subtle shades of red, yellow, and green to the canyon walls. Climate plays an important role in the appearance of the canyon. If there was a higher amount of precipitation at Grand Canyon, the plants and trees that grow here would be very different. The canyon walls might be covered with lush vegetation, rather than the cacti and shrubs growing there today.

The Canyon is a day trip from Sedona. Plan a full day and do not hesitate to ask us for the best route to avoid the many visitors and large crowds.
