Pictures to Inspire You to Visit Grand Canyon National Park
Grand Canyon National Park is huge. Its size and grandeur leave you speechless. Similar to a vast ocean, the deep abyss makes you feel small and insignificant. The canyon’s impressive size of 277 miles long and up to 18 miles wide sets it apart from other famous attraction of Arizona.
One of the most important designers of the Grand Canyon is the Colorado River. For millions of years it was steadily cutting through layer of rocks of the uplifted Colorado Plateau to shape the famous rock walls, trenches, and chasms.
Despite all the hype associated with the Grand Canyon East Rim, we chose to visit its less commercially-developed West Rim. Our decision was primarily based on the travel time from Los Angeles to the Grand Canyon. It takes approximately 5 hours to drive from LA to the West Rim as apposed to 7-8 hours to the East Rim.
Located within the Hualapai Reservation, the West Rim entices nearly a million visitors a year. With three main viewpoints available, the tourists take great pleasure in admiring the natural beauty of the ancient rock formations and taking ample pictures with the famous Eagle Point in the background.
Other activities include hiking to an old mining station at Guano Point, visiting a Western town near Hualapai Ranch cabins, and experiencing Skywalk.
