The only one of the Seven Natural Wonders located in North America, the Grand Canyon is one of the world’s most spectacular landscapes.
Carved out by the Colorado River, the Grand Canyon’s layered bands of red rock reveal billions of years of biological and geological history.
At its deepest, the Grand Canyon is 6,093 feet deep. It’s not the deepest canyon in the world though. The Yarlung Tsangpo Grand Canyon in Tibet plummets to a depth of 17,567 feet – more than 2 miles deeper than the Grand Canyon in Arizona.
