What helped created Grand Canyon Arizona?

A Northern Arizona Gem

The Colorado River created Grand Canyon, Arizona, along with some help from Mother Nature. This Grand Canyon location is the perfect combination of wind, rain, and rushing water that added up to a very, very big natural wonder.

The Colorado River cut through the layers of rock that make up the area, creating the wide gorge of the canyon. Side canyons and deeper cuts were created by smaller streams and creeks flowing into the Colorado.

Wind also helped sculpt the buttes and mesas that rise up from the bottom of the canyon. The weather, the river, and the location were all important factors, and they created the grandest canyon anywhere in the world.
