A photo journey through the Grand Canyon

Editor’s note Paul Burich is a retired businessman.  This is the first in his photo essay of one of our national treasures: The Grand Canyon – Part One

 

From the National Park Service Site: Grand Canyon

Introduction to Grand Canyon National Park
Nearly five million people each year see the 1 mile deep (1.6 km) Grand Canyon each year. The canyon is 277 river miles (446km) long, and up to 18 miles (29km) wide.

Most visitors (90%) see Grand Canyon from the “South Rim” from overlooks accessed by free park shuttle buses or by their personal vehicles.

A much smaller number of people (10%) see the canyon from the North Rim of the park, which lies just 10 miles (16 km) across the canyon from the South Rim, (as the California condor flies) but is a 220 mile/ 354 km drive by car.

    Some wonderful shots. What a great pass time it is when you can take photo’s at a leisurely pace.
