„Yavapai Point sunrise, Grand Canyon, Arizona, USA“

from the gallery of Tom Dempsey

Yavapai Point sunrise, South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona, USA. Grand Canyon began forming at least 5 to 17 million years ago and now exposes a geologic wonder, a column of well-defined rock layers nearly two billion years old. While the Colorado Plateau was uplifted by tectonic forces, the Colorado River and tributaries carved Grand Canyon over a mile deep (6000 feet / 1800 meters), 277 miles (446 km) long and up to 18 miles (29 km) wide. (Panorama stitched from 2 photos.)
