This wall is built for collecting all our memory about Grand Canyon in United States. Let's share and collect the amazing views and stories here.
Here are the introduction of Crand Canyon on Wikipedia:
The Grand Canyon (Hopi: Ongtupqa; Yavapai: Wi:kaʼi:la, Spanish: Gran Cañón), is a steep-sided canyon carved by the Colorado River in the state of Arizona in the United States. It is contained within and managed by Grand Canyon National Park, the Kaibab National Forest, Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument, the Hualapai Tribal Nation, the Havasupai people and the Navajo Nation. President Theodore Roosevelt was a major proponent of preservation of the Grand Canyon area, and visited it on numerous occasions to hunt and enjoy the scenery.
The Grand Canyon is 277 miles (446 km) long, up to 18 miles (29 km) wide and attains a depth of over a mile (6,093 feet or 1,857 meters). Nearly two billion years of Earth's geological history have been exposed as the Colorado River and its tributaries cut their channels through layer after layer of rock while the Colorado Plateau was uplifted. While the specific geologic processes and timing that formed the Grand Canyon are the subject of debate by geologists, recent evidence suggests that the Colorado River established its course through the canyon at least 17 million years ago. Since that time, the Colorado River continued to erode and form the canyon to its present-day configuration.

Instagram 上的 André Josselin：「 So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they're busy doing things they think are important. This is because they're chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning. #abouthiraeth #grandcanyon #andrejosselin 」
Instagram 上的 Anthony Marko：「 Little did my fiancée know at the end of our trip would be a ring waiting for her at the top of Angel's Landing...nor did she know we'd get into some really tight slots testing our claustrophobia and 20 mile days testing or mental and physical toughness much like our relationship. But above all else I fell in love with her even more, not even thinking it was possible! Jenna I LOVE YOU!!!! * * * Oh...and here's a shot some swirling sandstone! * #outdoorcollective #rei #liveoutdoors #adventureworthy #goatworthy #optoutside #wildernessculture #getoutstayout #columbia1938 #mountainhouse #wilderness #escalante #gsenm #lifeapp #adventureculture #slotcanyon #rei1440project #hikeutah #utahhiking #greatoutdoors #outdooradventures #camelbak #igutah #kivakoffeehouse #nationalpark #grandcanyon #yosemite 」
Stephen Alvarez on Instagram: “Thinking about my friend @pedromcbride currently walking the entire length of the #GrandCanyon and planning my own return to the canyon this spring led me to this image of Lange Cave that I shot years ago. The Canyon is such an amazing place, full of surprises. This cave is just below one of the most visited places in the park but is all but inaccessible. #arizona”
