Notice the difference in the canyon walls at this overlook. Although the movement of the river through the canyon is the main factor in the formation of the canyon; moisture in the form of rain, snow and frost collects in the cracks in the rock and adds to the erosion. The South Rim is more eroded because it does not get as much sun and dries out more slowly.
