Grand Canyon National Park
Grand Canyon National Park:
The Grand Canyon is more than a great chasm carved over millennia through the rocks of the Colorado Plateau. It is more than an awe-inspiring view. It is more than a pleasuring ground for those who explore the roads, hike the trails, or float the currents of the turbulent Colorado River.
The Grand Canyon is an awesome place. Its overwhelming size and its intricate and colorful landscape make it without question one of the seven marvels of the natural world.There are many miles of paved and unpaved walkways along the rim. The North Rim of the Grand Canyon shares similar outstanding views from a vantage point 1000 feet higher than on the South Rim.The Grand Canyon Skywalk is a new and quite unique tourist attraction located literally on the edge of the Grand Canyon. The Skywalk is a glass-bottom horseshoe-shaped walkway projecting 70 feet out over the edge allowing visitors to look straight down, nearly 4,000 feet below to the bottom of the canyon.
Everyone should visit the Grand Canyon at least once in your life. Park admission is well worth it , long line of cars to get in but it moves quickly. So many spots along south scenic drive to stop and get right on the edge. I rode my motorcycle along the south rim and was speechless the entire time !! I would suggest taking a full day to allow you to take your time to take in the breathtaking views. Do not miss the desert watch tower on the far East side. America should be very proud that this is in the heart of their great country.
Still my favorite national park and favorite natural wonder! Been here numerous times and we enjoy taking family or friends who are visiting there. I absolutely love the shuttle system. Always have great experiences, staff is always helpful. Love seeing wildlife just walking by visitors through the park. My only regret is that I haven't been able to hike down the canyon yet. Would love to and Can't wait to actually be able to do it.
Visited this phenomenal natural wonder in February. The sights are just as amazing as the summer but much fewer people. Try to arrive early to get a full day visit. Dress in layers with a hat or scarf. Trails are very easy on the rim top. Trails into the canyon are steep but in great shape.
I've been in Arizona for 8 years and finally got a chance to visit the Grand Canyon. I was really impressed; not just by the canyon, but by the whole park experience. The buses are free and take you all over. It's a great way to see everything. We are at the cafe inside the grocery store and the food was decent with reasonable prices. I hope to go back in the future. Now, I just need to figure out how to get my dream job as a Grand Canyon bus driver.
One of the most beautiful places on Earth. It is necessary to have reservations and to keep your confirmation number. Wildlife will roam around the campground. Walking distance to store. Great trails for everyone. A place everyone needs to experience at least once in their life. More than once is better.
