The location on the featured video is Havasu Falls, Mooney Falls and Navajo Falls on the Havasupai Indian Reservation. The list to get in is long and the journey is difficult but the rewards are spectacular.
The Grand Canyon National Park can only truly be experienced in person to fully appreciate is size and scope. This unique combination of color and grandeur that follows the Colorado River for 277 miles and is up to 18 miles wide and a mile deep. The Grand Canyon overwhelms the senses through its immense size.
When approaching from the south you cannot see the Grand Canyon until you are almost on the rim. It makes me wonder what the first people though when migrating to new lands. The immense size of it might be enough to make me say “to hell with it, we have reached the end of the world”. Seriously folks, this is one seriously big hole in the ground.
The canyon was formed by the Colorado River that flowed out of the western slope of the Rocky Mountains. It is the result of constant erosion by the Colorado River over millions of years with the help of plate tectonics, geologic uplift, and erosion from wind, rain, and ice.
Entry cost to the park is minimal and well worth the price of admission. Depending on what you want to do in the park will dictate how much it will cost and how hard you must work to get it. Most people choose to drive along the rim and stop for scenic views and vistas along the way. Some people experience it by helicopters and others by kayaking or riding a donkey down the side of the canyon. Regardless of how you see the canyon remember to be safe and respect the environment.
Some say you can camp free in the Grand Canyon National Park but I have you to see an official website say that. I do know you can find free camping in the Kaibab National Forest just outside the park on the southern side. There is plenty of free camping in Arizona but I do not know if the park is on that list.
The rumors persist that Waldo is hiding out in the Grand Canyon National Park. Have you seen him?
