Too many and too good.
1. One of the seven natural wonders
It is one of the seven natural wonders of the world and is also much easily accessible compared to the rest. You can climb or trek through the Grand Canyon or a part of it easily than you can reach the base summit of the Everest and still feel awesome about it.
2. Photographs don’t do enough justice
Even the most breathtaking and the best photographs don’t do enough justice to this place nor do they capture the many delights of this canyon. You have to be there in person and take it in yourself to be completely bowled over.
3. Really old
It is one of the oldest places in the earth. The Colorado River has been carving the canyon for almost six million years and the rocks are over a billion years old. How older can a place get? Isn’t that reason enough to get you going there?
4. It’s not just the canyon
The canyon, as great and grand as it is, also hosts a number of wildlife. Coyotes, mule deer and the great horned owl are some of the animals you can see and hear in the Grand Canyon and be shocked and delighted.
