Grand Canyon, Arizona Overview

The Grand Canyon leaves visitors gaping and gawking with its sharp rising and falling demeanour. Straggling in Arizona, U.S, the canyon is complacent for being shaped by Colorado River. Since this canyon resides in the Grand Canyon National Park and is part of the Hualapai Tribal Nation and Havasupai Tribe, the canyon is also managed and run by all these. The Grand Canyon establishes itself as a big crack on the Colorado Plateau.

The canyon that we have today is the result of incessant efforts of President Theodore Roosevelt to preserve it and who used to visit it for the hunting and to savour the scenic beauty. It has a beautiful and exquisite landscape. The place also gives home to many ancient rocks that have been naturally embedded into the surfaces of the canyon. These rock layers also narrate the geological past of North America.

The Ancient Puebloans are believed to be the first natives of the canyon. These are known to be the natives of American culture who chose to reside in the region. In the Grand Canyon village, one can find many striking buildings such as Buckey O'Neill Cabin, Kolb Studio, El Tovar Hotel, Hopi House, Verkamp's Curios, Lookout Studio, Desert View Watchtower and so on. The weather in the canyon is usually dry but the region witnesses precipitation mainly two times in the year. During the winters, the region also gets bestowed with rain and snow gifted by the Pacific storms. The summers are also characterised by North American Monsoon accompanied by thunderstorms and dramatic scenic views.
