Grand Canyon

TraveLibro United States of America Grand Canyon Featured City
The difference between grandeur and simplicity is so deep, it could very well be a valley. That valley is the Grand Canyons fall, bridging the colossal beauty of Nature with the simplicity of its existence. Carved by the magnificent Colorado River, the Canyon in Arizona is a creation beyond marvel. The city is a hiker’s paradise with its South Kabab Trail and Bright Angel Trail. Considered to be one of the most liberating spots of the world, the Canyon is flanked by the sceneries of the North and South Rim, along with the sunset view at Lipan Point. Described as a photographer’s perch, the Hopi Point plays the perfect backdrop for brilliance, while Powell Point, Shoshone Point, Mather Point and Yaki Point transport you to the tip of the world. As you drive through the Cape Royal Drive, you will understand the privilege of experiencing Nature at its best.

TraveLibro United States of America Grand Canyon Featured City Havasu Falls

Havasu Falls

Spend a night camping near the beautiful Havasu Falls, the most dramatic waterfalls in the Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon’s geologic layers step down from the rims to the Colorado River, and the steeper sections create waterfalls in drainages as they descend to the bottom. The falls consist of one main channel, dropping over a 90-foot to 100-foot vertical cliff into a series of plunge pools. Admire its beautiful turquoise water, a result of having been stored underground – in the limestone caverns or aquifers – for as much as 30,000 years; swim behind the falls and enter a small rock shelter that lies behind.
