One of the 7 natural wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon is 277 miles (446 km) long, up to 18 miles (29 km) wide and attains a depth of over a mile (6,000 feet or 1,800 meters). The Colorado River established its course through the canyon at least 17 million years ago. Nearly two billion years of the Earth's geological history has been exposed from the river and its tributaries cutting through layer after layer of rock.
For thousands of years, the area has been continuously inhabited by Native Americans who built settlements within the canyon and its many caves. The first European known to have viewed the Grand Canyon was in 1540.
