The Grand Canyon is one of the world's great wonders. At over a mile deep in places, from four to eighteen miles wide, and over 217 miles long, the canyon is a spectacular sight. It was forced through a combination of geological uplift, river erosion, submergence, and material deposits. The plant life also differs wildly from the top of the canyon to the bottom. At the top, plant life can be subarctic in nature, while they can be subtropical at the bottom. More information about the Grand Canyon can be found at encyclopedia.com.
