Caption

The Grand Canyon is a titanic gorge more than a mile deep, and from 4 to 18 miles wide. At its bottom, the mighty Colorado River rushes to the sea. Rising from its depths are whole ranges of mountains, their bases a mile below where you are standing, their tops only slightly below the level of your eyes.
