"Change & forever" Information Tip by Sharrie

Information, Grand Canyon National Park: 16 reviews and 16 photos


Favorite thing: Learn a little about the geology behind the formation of this wonder.

What looks timeless here is actually constantly changing. The Grand Canyon encodes 2 billion years (!) of earth's history. This is really beyond my wildest imagination & intelligence. 2 billion years? You must be kidding, right? Well, that's what those guide books say. I'll never understand how the geologists can measure time as long as that! But, it's really incredible just to grasp the meaning of time & space. And, here, yes, at the Grand Canyon, you have a chance to experience it for yourself!
