Point Imperial, Grand Canyon, Arizona, USA
Arizona

From near 8,800 feet the Point Imperial viewpoint at the north rim of the Grand Canyon offers sweeping views of the northeastern part of the national park.  In the foreground, carved out of ancient petrified sand dunes the spire of Mount Hayden reaches a peak just 400 feet below the view point.  Beyond Mount Hayden nearly in a line from the view area, the Little Colorado River joins the Colorado from its own smaller but still massive Little Colorado canyon.  Upstream and to the left of the view, the Colorado cuts through Marble Canyon, too deep to be seen from this vantage point.  Further to the north, the viewer can make out the broad expanse of the desert plateau with the river carving through it as it descends from Lake Powell.

More About 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.
