The Grand Canyon of the Colorado

Betty Anderson

The Grand Canyon is in Arizona in the Colorado River. It was formed by this river cutting its way through the jagged rocs and cliffs of great mountains. This canyon is one mile wide and two hundred miles long. If you should look down from the top of one of these great yawning precipices you would see what looks like a silver thread far below winding its way between tall cliffs. Two hundred miles of wonderful crimson and orange Chinese temples, palaces and giant staircases is a magnificent sight. The beautifully colored rocks all glow in the sunset. The sun out of sight and the pine trees whispering a good night song we now say good bye to the greatest and most beautiful canon in the world.
