1. The Grand Canyon

Of course, we had to start off our list with one of the most popular canyons not just in the U.S. but in the entire world. They don’t call it the GRAND Canyon for nothing, with over 55 million visitors every year and 277 miles in length.

We must all thank the Colorado River for caring out the canyon’s steep sides, as it has been doing for millions of years.

Its iconic horizontal lines depict different layers of rocks, with the very bottom of the canyon being over 2 billion years old- that should put everything into perspective, time-wise!

    In addition to the Grand Canyon, there are numerous other canyons in Arizona that are also breathtaking. The area around the Grand Canyon is full of them and they can be searched for online.

    Canyon De Chelly outdoes all the canyons above with one possible exception! A truly remarkable natural wonder, located in the heart of the Navajo Nation in northern Arizona, it is steeped in history and is spellbinding to behold!
