About The Event

Grand Canyon

 

The Grand Canyon is one of the seven wonders of the world with a maximum width of 22 miles and depth of nearly a mile. The overall silence and stillness that many visitors experience at the Grand Canyon does not hint of the geologic processes that are active today, or in the recent past, in the canyon. Except for the occasional visitor who hears a rock fall, or a rare large landslide,

it is not apparent that the canyon is actively getting bigger. However, the erosion processes that originally formed the Grand Canyon are still active today as the Colorado River and its tributaries slowly cut deeper into the canyon. On this trip you will get to view the canyon in all its glory from sunrise to sunset, from the tip of the south rim to its bowels and raging Colorado River.  

 

As with Death Valley, high summer can turn the Grand Canyon floor into a furnace, with temperatures reaching 49C (unusual); winter shuts off vehicle access to the North Rim entirely. The optimum windows for hiking are from late May to June, and from

September until the end of November. However, an expedition may entail beginning on the North Rim and ending on the South Rim, West of the village at Hermit Trailhead, depending on weather conditions.
