The Grand Canyon is a huge gorge, approximately 1 mile deep, carved by the Colorado River, that winds through northwest Arizona. Its width ranges from 4–18 miles and it runs some 280 miles from Marble Canyon, near the Arizona-Utah line, to Grand Wash Cliffs in Arizona’s northern Mohave County.
Zion is very likely one of the most awe-inspiring National Parks in the world with the annual number of visitors ranging over 2.5 million. Throughout the park iron oxide has colored the sandstone many shades of red, while more natural white hues are also visible. Water flow from rain and river has etched through the rock and created deep chasms of twisted and convoluted mass. Elevations in the Park range from 4,000 feet in the valley floors to nearly 9,000 feet at the highest points.
Words don’t convey an adequate description of the beauty of Bryce Canyon. Rocky domes, twisted spires and temples are the dominant landscape motif in these parts; with their predominating colors in a multitude of reds, pinks and creams. Hoodoos, the eerie and often whimsical spires, jut from the terrain are gallantly on display throughout the horseshoe-shaped amphitheaters.
