Grand Canyon - Arizona November 18th 2012

The Grand Canyon has been carved out to the living rock by the Colorado River, and is considered one of the "7 Natural Wonders of the World".

 The Grand Canyon is 277 miles (446 km) long, up to 18 miles (29 km) wide at its widest point. It attains a depth of over 1 mile (6,000 feet / 1,800 metres). Nearly two billion years of geological history have been exposed as the Colorado River has cut a channel through layers of rock while the Colorado Plateau was uplifted.

We stayed in a Hotel complex in the Canyon National Park on the south side of the canyon. The accommodation was basic but served its purpose. The best place to eat in the park is the El Tovar Hotel, which has a small bar that faces the canyon and is perfect for watching the sunset.
