Even though the Grand Canyon is magical, the average first-time visitor to the Grand Canyon spends six hours here or less.

But we think the Grand Canyon gets better the longer you stay.

The mighty Colorado River began its work on the Grand Canyon more than 20 million years ago. River water shaped, formed and cut through layers of rock over millions of years.

The Grand Canyon is made up of giant, eroded buttes, monoliths and temples, in colors that constantly change in the light.

From rim to river, it holds 1.8 billion years of geology.

This one mile-deep, 10-mile-wide hole in the ground can stir up a wide range of emotions and thoughts in the person looking down into it.

It's wondrous, it's mysterious, it's just plain grand.
