- The oldest human artifacts found in the Grand Canyon National Park date to the Paleo-Indian period and are nearly 12,000 years old!
- The Kaibab limestone caprock on the rims of the Grand Canyon formed over 270 million years ago. The Canyon itself was formed by the Colorado River over 6 million years ago. Perhaps one of the most spectacular examples of erosion, the Grand Canyon is estimated to have taken 3-6 million years to form and erosion still continues today, with the river, rain, snow, heat and frost enhancing the rock formations that are already present. In some areas the Grand Canyon is up to 18 miles wide and a mile deep.
- The Colorado River flows west through the canyon at an average of 4 miles per hour and is 300 feet wide and up to 40 feet deep.
- The Grand Canyon National Park was made a national monument in 1908 and became a national park in 1919. The park encompasses over a million acres of land on the Colorado Plateau in northwestern Arizona and contains over 277 miles of the Colorado River. The park is populated by five Indian tribes, the Hopi, Navajo, Havasupai, Paiute and Hualapai. It is home to over 1,500 plants, 88 species of mammals, 56 species of reptiles and amphibians and 17 species of fish. It is also inhabited by over 355 species of birds, including the Bald Eagle, Peregrine Falcon and the California condor, which boasts over a 10 foot wingspan.
- The Grand Canyon contains five of the seven life zones and three of the four desert types seen North American. The life zones hosted by the Grand Canyon are the Lower Sonoran, Upper Sonoran, Transition, Canadian and Hudsonian. One can see as many life zones in the Grand Canyon alone, as they would if traveling from Mexico to Canada. Over 5 million people visit the Grand Canyon each year.
