Grand Canyon
It is situated in
Arizona, USA
Shaped by the Colorado River over
thousands of years as its waters
covered the bed.
About 2 billion years of geological
history of Earth were exposed by the
river, as it and its tributaries cut
through layer after layer of sediment.
The Grand Canyon was first seen
by a European in 1540, the
Spaniard Garcia Lopez de
Cardenas.
