    Rediscover the Unforgettable at the Grand Canyon


    Grand Canyon

    Unforgettable Is…
    Peering Into One of the Seven Natural Wonders

    You enter through the park gate and can already feel the sense of excitement and wonder build. After you park your car, the anticipation grows as you walk towards the Rim Trail and through the Grand Canyon, South Rim’s Historic Village–a living time capsule of a world from the turn of the 20th century. And then, so suddenly that you become breathless, you find yourself there. You are peering into the abyss of this Natural Wonder of the World and as time stands still, you understand.

    It is here where the sublime and the spiritual intersect. Where your sense of smallness is not belittling, but awe-inspiring. This is where wonder lives.

    5 Iconic Experiences at Grand Canyon

    Each year, Grand Canyon inspires people to travel to northern Arizona to experience one of the world’s most spectacular natural wonders. Bordered by the massive Kaibab Plateau (which rests upon the even larger Colorado Plateau), Grand Canyon’s dimensions — roughly 277 miles long, 18 miles across, and one mile deep — offer enough space to provide unlimited opportunities for recreation, exploration, and self-discovery. So how to choose? Here are five iconic experiences that will fully immerse you into this unique landscape and create memories that will last forever.

    Grand Canyon After Dark

    A run-of-the-mill magician can earn a round of applause by making a car disappear; a standing ovation if he can do the same thing with a bus.

    But every day around dark, nature makes Grand Canyon vanish. Now you see it — now you don’t.

    So what do you do when the sight that attracts millions of visitors from around the world is, for all intents and purposes, out of sight? Although the canyon may be taking a siesta, that doesn’t mean Grand Canyon National Park goes to sleep. There’s always something happening in the park after dark.

    The History of Mules at the Grand Canyon

    They’ve been characterized as the tractors of the 19th century. So it’s really no wonder that mules played a central role in the human history of the Grand Canyon.

    Early prospectors used the beasts of burden in seeking their fortunes. And by the late 1880s, when tourists began arriving, the sturdy, sure-footed animals provided an easy way to experience the marvels within the grand chasm.

    Bigger and stronger than horses, these hybrid beasts (the offspring of a female horse and a male burro) offer a relatively smooth ride as they pick their way across the narrow switchback trails leading to the canyon floor. Learn more about these steadfast and sure-footed fixtures of the Grand Canyon.
