The Grand Canyon draws five million visitors annually and with good reason. This incredible natural wonder, which is 277 miles long and 18 miles across, offers breathtaking views and is rich in geology that dates back 170 million years.
Before you book your trip to see this naturally occurring wonder of the world, you need to listen to The Grand Canyon: Everything You Have Ever Wanted to Know About This Naturally Occurring Wonder of the World. This comprehensive guide will completely prepare you to get the most out of your visit. The guide includes information about:
Weather: It's always unpredictable, so be sure to check the most recent forecast. It can change rapidly.
Plants: Know what the flora you are looking at are called. The Grand Canyon is home to a richly diverse plant population of trees, brush, and flowers.
Animals: What kind of wildlife will you see? Many creatures call the canyon home. Mountain lions, bears, and rattlesnakes, oh my! No need to worry; just be aware they live there, and you are a guest in their home, so be on your best (safest) behavior when you visit. You will also see plenty of harmless animals like bald eagles, beavers, pinyon jays, and many kinds of lizards.
Activities: Hiking, backpacking, rafting, and the famous mule treks are just a few of the fun ways you can spend your days. This guide will give you some insider information on planning your excursions.
You must be sure to visit the Skywalk, as there is no view quite like it from anywhere else around the canyon. If you have a fear of heights, now is the time to face it because this is a spot you don't want to miss.
Keep your Grand Canyon guide handy on your phone or tablet, and be prepared to immerse yourself in the beauty of the natural world.
