Grand Canyon - Nature Wonder

Grand Canyon National Park - West Rim

The Grand Canyon is a steep-sided canyon carved by the Colorado River in the United States in the state of Arizona. It is contained within and managed by Grand Canyon National Park, the Hualapai Tribal Nation, and the Havasupai Tribe.  It is considered one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.

Why Grand Canyon is a natural wonder?   
Because it was created by the natural forces of wind and water erosion over a long period of time. Nearly two billion years of the Earth's geological history has been exposed as the Colorado River and its tributaries cut their channels through layer after layer of rock while the Colorado Plateau was uplifted. While the specific geologic processes and timing that formed the Grand Canyon are the subject of debate by geologists, recent evidence suggests the Colorado River established its course through the canyon at least 17 million years ago. Since that time, the Colorado River continued to erode and form the canyon to its present-day configuration. Grand Canyon is classified as West Rim, North Rim, South Rim.
