North American National Park #12: Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

There is little I can say about the Grand Canyon that you probably don’t already know.

It is the largest canyon on Earth. It is one of the greatest wonders in nature (despite the ridiculous voting the 7 Natural Wonders competition). It is also one of the three crown jewels in the US National Park system along with Yellowstone and Yosemite.

The Grand Canyon should be on everyone’s bucket list.

I’ve been to the Grand Canyon twice and I’d happily go again and again if I had the opportunity. During my next visit I hope to visit the North Rim and someday I would like to raft down the Colorado River.
