One of the most intensely visited areas of the Grand Canyon National Park is the South Rim Trail. This trail runs for miles along the Rim, usually within a few feet of the cliffs and close to the drop off into the canyon. Part of this trail has been dedicated formally as the Trail of Time, with rock samples along the trail from every strata in the canyon. The canyon is over a mile deep at this location. The picture was taken during an early Spring snowstorm with winds blowing about 25 to 30 mph.

Grand Canyon Panorama

This panorama was taken in Arizona, USA

This is an overview of USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
