What people are saying:

Roaming the beautiful western United States canyon-Powell Point The Grand Canyon Village in the western United States, also called the Grand Canyon National Park, is located in the Kaibab Plateau in the western United States. It is one of the longest canyons in the world, with a total length of about 446 kilometers. The largest reading is about 1,740 meters, with a total area of 2,724 square meters. The pride of the Wilderness Grand Canyon is always seen in the Grand Canyon of the Western United States in movies and westerns. This time, driving to the Grand Canyon by car is a personal experience. The road is very smooth along the way, but there are many signs indicating that there are wild animals. I feel scared, and maybe a deer will pop out. However, I have never met all the way to the Grand Canyon. The most terrain of the canyon is various shrubs. There are small yellow flowers in the clump. The famous viewing platform of the canyon There are many viewing platforms in Grand Canyon Village, and the one we visited this time is more special, called Powell Point. It is a very popular sunset viewing spot in the area, and Indians here often come here. Watching the sunset, we met a pair of Indian mothers and daughters when we went there. The daughters hugged their mothers and sat quietly, leaning against each other and looking at the sunset canyon, which was touching. The Grand Canyon is not like the mystery of the tropical rainforest, it is more like an American brawny, very heroic. It is basically composed of cliffs, but it is uninterrupted. The strangely shaped rocks are like sand sculptures under the sun, all of which are works of art. There is also a photo of a rainbow in a canyon at Powell Point. This is formed by the water vapor from the sun shining on the canyon after raining over the canyon. It is very spectacular. Unfortunately, when we went there, the weather was very good. It did not rain before, but the sun was setting. A little bit of disappearance in the canyon is considered a miracle of the canyon, and it will be fresh in my memory for a long time. Tips: Do a good job of sun protection, remember to put on a jacket after watching the sunset, the temperature difference is relatively large.

    A great place to view the Grand Canyon especially to watch the sunrise.

    One of my favorite places to view the canyon. The colors are simply amazing especially at sunrise. Words can never do this place justice.

    Nice photo to take

    We liked it a lot: the pics above the canyon were great! A special point. Not as impressive as Mohave, but very special.
