The Grand Canyon is a, colorful, steep-sided gorge carved by the Colorado River in the U.S. state of Arizona. It is largely contained within the Grand Canyon National Park — one of the first national parks in the United States.
The Canyon was largely unexplored until after the U.S. Civil War. In 1869, Major John Wesley Powell, made the first recorded journey through the canyon on the Colorado River.
Grand Canyon National Park is one of the world’s premier natural attractions, attracting about five million visitors per year.
