The Grand Canyon

View USA West Coast on divatmotoros's travel map.

One of the natural wonders of the World. You can not imagine how small you feel when you see the 10 miles wide, 1 mile deep Canyon. A relative young, 6 million years old geological structure carved by the Colorado River is one of the most visited sight of the USA. We were grateful coming in December as it was much less crowded than during summertime. We could also drive along the Hermit Road which is only accessible by tour buses except December to March.

We visited the South Rim and the Grand Canyon Village, the kids got their activity books to become junior rangers upon completition (just like in the Denali National Park) and they watched a 20 minutes movie in English about the Canyon at the visitor center. The Canyon is visible from space and the pictures by a phone will not tell you the story.
