Grand Canyon Travel Guide

I have lived in the Grand Canyon state of Arizona for over 30 years. I created the Grand Canyon Travel Guide to share my experiences visiting this wonderful national park. The Grand Canyon is one of the most spectacular sites in the United States. It is after all, one of the wonders of the world . I can give you objective information from personal experience that will make your visit to this park more fun and more exciting.

The Grand Canyon is filled with mystery, intrigue and hidden places that you will find interesting. I will help you plan your Grand Canyon vacation.

  • You will discover how the Grand Canyon was formed.

  • Read about the best time to visit.

  • Know how to get to the south rim from Williams on the train.

  • Learn about the best Bus, and helicopter tours.

  • See the wildlife and plant life.

  • Find out about the Skywalk. Is it really as scary as they say it is?

You will also learn facts about the history, geology and weather patterns in the Grand Canyon. Did you know that there are ghosts in the canyon? Many people have experienced some scary moments which I will elaborate on. I will tell you about some of the nearby ghost towns as well.

The wonders of the Grand Canyon cannot be adequately represented in symbols of speech nor by speech itself. The resources of the graphic art are taxed beyond their powers in attempting to portray its features. Language and illustration combined must fail.

John Wesley Powell

The Grand Canyon Travel Guide will also help you to learn about

  • the South Rim, location of the most familiar sights.

  • the West Rim, where you will see the new Skywalk on the Hualapai Indian Reservation.

  • the North Rim. Its higher elevation means that it is greener, shadier and cooler than the south side

  • a very remote area Toroweap (barren valley) is in the western part of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon National Park . It is worth the difficult trip to see the Toroweap Overlook which has spectacular scenery.

  • the activities where you will experience the best outdoor adventures in North America with camping, hiking, and taking the enchanting mule trip.

And last but not least the Colorado River and river rafting.

Educators, students and outdoor activists will find interesting information in the Grand Canyon Travel Guide. There are many activities that the Grand Canyon National park offers especially the hiking trails.
