Hoja  Gran Cañon del Colorado...





The Grand Canyon (the Grand Canyon) is a colorful, steep gorge carved by the Colorado River in Northern Arizona, United States. The Canyon is considered one of the natural wonders of the world and is located mostly within the Grand Canyon National Park (one of the first National Parks in the United States). President Theodore Roosevelt was a major promoter of the Grand Canyon area, visiting on numerous occasions to hunt mountain lions or enjoy the stunning scenery.

The canyon was created by the Colorado river, which undermined the ground for millions of years. It is about 446 km long, with ranges from 6-29 km wide and reaches depths of over 1,600 m. About 2,000 million years of Earth history have been exposed as the Colorado River and its tributaries and tributaries cut layer after layer of sediment at the same timpo the Colorado Plateau rose.

Apart from the occasional visit to the south rim tour with 2134 meters above sea level, rafting or rafting and hiking are especially popular. The valley is accessible by foot, mule or boat descending from the upper river. Park officials do not advise running in a day's excursion down to the river and back up because of the distance, the effort required and the risk of heat exhaustion by the high temperatures reached in the background. Even trips to the edge must be done carefully at certain points; there are often warning signs along the tracks that run through the canyon edges.

There are companies that organize river rafting descents, usually 15 people in boats equipped with outboard engine, usually from Lee's Ferry and Diamond Creek lasting reach theabout 6 days trip. The boats equipped with oars only usually take about 2 weeks to complete the trip. There are also companies that organize trips for tourists by helicopter to the Grand Canyon.
