The Grand Canyon is one mile deep and 277 miles long, and was formed during 6 million years of geological activity.  Yes, this canyon country is grand.  The "tips of the iceberg" are the views from each rim.  The soul of the Grand sits deep within its walls, only available to those who venture down the Colorado River and the many trails leading from it.  From the lush forests of the North Rim, hike along sinuous sandstone ribbons sculpted over millions of years.  Savor the canyon's shifting palette of red, orange and gold.  Sometimes you have to go to the end of the earth to find your center.  It's easier to think outside the box when you're not inside one.  There are places you leave.  This is one that will never leave you.
