About This Site



"A strange hush clings to the edge of this mile-deep canyon. It's the hush of reverential awe. For the first-time visitor to the canyon, there's no better approach than from the south, across the barren windswept scrubland of the Colorado Plateau. You hardly notice the elevation gain and the change to pine and juniper forest. Suddenly --it's there. No preliminaries, no warning. Stark, quiet, a maze of colors and cathedrals sculpted by nature."
Frommer's Arizona, by Karl Samson with Jane Aukshunas
