Tuweep Valley on the Grand Canyon north rim
Arizona

The road from Hwy 389 to the Toroweap overlook leads through the western side of the Tuweep valley. The Tuweep valley is very beautiful and different from most other valleys around. A long time ago, this was a steep side canyon leading into the colorado river canyon, but a volcanic eruption filled the side-canyon with lava creating the broad and shallow valley we see today.

This pano was taken a few feet below the road looking mostly towards the west into the broad valley. The dirt road is very well maintained up to the national park boundary a few miles south of this spot. Inside the national park, it becomes a bumpy high-clearance roaller coaster road.

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.
