In the time of ice age, nearly two billion years ago, there was land and land where ever you see. The Colorado River & its tributaries cut the land to different channels & layers of rock & formed the canyons which were so vast that it was named as “Grand Canyon”.
As the land was cut by the Colorado River, the fossil impressions of fish and aquatic animals were found on the layered rocks and by this, people came to know about this formation.
It was not formed overnight but it took millions of years to form these beautiful Canyons which we see today. The Colorado River with all its force flowed on this land and formed new routes, with erosion of land, watering to the land & the climate all together played a major role in carving the canyons we see today.
The Grand Canyon is 277 miles long, up to 18 miles wide 6000 feet in depth.
