Grand Canyon meandering
Today, the Hiking on the Moon’s team brings you to the very famous Grand Canyon National Park! Located in the state of Arizona, in the west part of the United States, this canyon never stops being impressive due to its gigantism. Every year, millions of visitors come to the 5.000 km2 park, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979.
Absolute cave of Ali Baba for geologists, the Grand Canyon is an open air museum because of the variety of rocks and stratums that can be found there. It contains the entire history of the North American continent by itself.
We’ve selected for you a few pictures taken by the Grand Canyon National Park Service. Some think the best way to see its hugeness is to go down to the canyon, others think that the best views are at the top of the cliffs. Regardless, of what you decide, you will leave awestruck! Our piece of advice? Get there at sunrise or sunset, admiring the contrasts and shades of rocks.
