The Grand Canyon is one of nature's wonders that continue to amaze everyone who visits there. The canyon itself is 277 miles long, 18 miles wide at its widest point, and reaches a depth of a mile. I think what amazes me the most is that this canyon was created by erosion over a 2 billion year period by the Colorado River. Hard to believe that water could have carved this masterpiece, no matter how long it took. I thought of this when I composed a closeup of the river as it slowly moved its way westward to the Gulf of California between Baja California and Sonora.
