Grand Canyon 10

Our first family road trip was year 2008. My daughter was 2 years old then. She’s a good traveler. We spent most of our time driving on the road for 2 weeks. We drove 7 different states in the US (including California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Idaho, Washington and Oregon). It was a fun experience.

One of the highlights during our trip was to visit the famous Grand Canyon. We stayed at the Hualapai Lodge for 2 nights. We also got a chance to walked the glass Sky Walk that just over the Canyon.

The Grand Canyon is a massive gorge located in the state of Arizona in the United States, and was created by the Colorado River. Although not the steepest nor the longest canyon in the world, the Grand Canyon is recognized as a natural wonder because of the overall scale and size combined with the beautifully colored landscape. The canyon offers a variety of lookouts and experiences that provide visitors with a view that cannot be matched.
The canyon is 277 miles (446 km) long
The width ranges from 4 to 18 miles (6.4 to 29 km)
The depth is over one mile (1.83 km)
Majority is housed within Grand Canyon National Park

    No wonder why it’s on the list of natural wonders in the world. It only proves that God’s creation is magnificent that even a man-made creations could not surpass His talent. Grand Canyon is a wonderful place. A breathe-taking tourist spot.
