The Grand Canyon, United States
The Grand Canyon is one of the most famous gorges in the world. It has very steep sides and stretches for about 277 miles in length while being 18 miles wide. When you look down from the top of the canyon, it is more than 1 mile in depth. This is the equivalent of 1,857 meters which is 6,093 feet. The Colorado River is responsible for creating this geological formation over a period of 5,000 years. When you look at the redness of the rocky terrain, that is a visual indicator of their old age. Toward the bottom of the canyon, there are rocks which are believed to be roughly 1.8 billion years old.
There are multiple viewpoints at The Grand Canyon where you can see it from different areas. There are Mather Point, Mary Colter’s Lookout Studio, Yavapai Observation Station, and others. Most of the tourists just stay at the southern rim and admire the views of the canyon. However, there are plenty of hiking trails for those who want to be more adventurous and get closer to the terrain.
