Ask A Question


I can answer general questions about visiting and enjoying the Grand Canyon. We get there as often as possible, and think it is an awesome place and a must see for everyone. I cannot answer questions about specific water temperatures, water flow rates in the Colorado River, or geology questions about the canyon. I can direct you to areas which may have that information.

What do you like about this subject?

The Grand Canyon is Awesome!

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

The Grand Canyon is at a high altitude. The North Rim is at about 8000 feet, and the South Rim is at about 7000 feet.
