297--Arizona: The Grand Canyon
@ CherieSpotting     Jul 06 2005 - 11:45 PST
cherie writes: There are certain landscapes that defy description. Carved by the thrust of the Colorado River, the Grand Canyon lets the traveler peek into the earth’s deepest secrets. The canyon walls, layered with 2000 million years of history, stand as a testament to time. Looking over the edge, your eye traces the lines of cliffs and valleys, plateaus and gorges, through narrows and across plains. The Grand Canyon is 1 mile deep (1,600 meters), 277 miles long (446 kilometers) and 4 to 8 miles wide (6-29 kilometers) depending on your vantage point. Come see the photos as the sun sinks below the horizon and makes the canyons seams of marble glow with luminescence.

Near the glorious Grand Canyon is the Glen Canyon Dam with its 3,700-ft towering walls of concrete. The Dam was built with blocks of concrete 7.5-feet tall its construction created the body of water we now call, Lake Powell. What did the fish say when it ran into the concrete wall? Dam!
