Grand Canyons of the USA
Did you know there are two grand canyons in the USA – The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone in Wyoming and The Grand Canyon in Arizona.
The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone is located in Yellowstone National Park. This National Park was established March 1, 1872. The Yellowstone’s Grand Canyon is the first large canyon on the Yellowstone River downstream from Yellowstone Falls. The canyon is 24 miles long, 800-1,200 feet deep, and .25 to .75 miles’ wide. I captured these photographs from Artist Point.
The Grand Canyon is a steeped sided canyon carved by the Colorado River in Arizona. The Grand Canyon is located within the Grand Canyon National Park, the Kaibab National Forest, Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument, The Hualapai Tribal Nation, the Havasupai people and the Navajo Nation. Established February 26, 1919, the Grand Canyon is the fifteenth oldest National park. It is 277 miles long, up to 18 miles wide and reaches a depth of over a mile. My photographs were taken at various locations along the south rim on a very hazy day.
