Grand Canyon a national park in the united states

Grand Canyon is a steep cliffs, carved by the Colorado River, in northern Arizona. This canyon is one of the Seven Wonders of the World and mostly located in Grand Canyon National Park; one of the first national parks in the United States.

President Theodore Roosevelt is one of the main supporters of the Grand Canyon area, visiting on numerous occasions to hunt mountain lion and enjoy the incredible natural scenery.

This canyon, created by the Colorado River cutting a strait for millions of years, the length of approximately 446 km, with a width ranging from 6 to 29 km and a depth of more than 1,600 m. Nearly 2000 million years of Earth history has been cut by the Colorado River and its tributaries layer after layer of sediment as the Colorado Plateau began to rise.

Grand Canyon was first seen by Europeans in 1540, García López de Cárdenas from Spain. The first scientific expedition to the canyon was led by U.S. Major John Wesley Powell in the late 1870s.

Powell pointed to the sedimentary rocks exposed in the canyon as "leaves in a great story book". However, long before that time, this region has been inhabited by Native Americans who built a residence in the walls of this canyon.

In addition to this place attracts tourists to visit because of her beauty, Sedona is also interesting as a spiritual destination. This place is believed to have spiritual energy. This city also has an organization called The Sedona Metaphysical Spiritual Association.

Although not very popular like the Grand Canyon and Sedona. But Mesa is also interesting to visit. I so can see up close the famous American dessert with trees that alamak gedenya cactusnya called Sonoran cactus.

We can also find ex-city parents who abandoned ghost town called Mount Superstition surrounding it.
