The Grand Canyon is a big ditch in the southwestern United States (primarily Arizona) that is approximately 277 miles long, almost a mile deep at its deepest point and varies in width between a quarter of a mile to about 15 miles.
How the Grand Canyon Came into ExistenceEdit
God made the Grand Canyon so that the Colorado River would have a place to stay.
It is no more than 4,500 years old.
Bill O'Reilly's current best-seller, Culture Warrior (on sale now at Barnes & Noble), tells the truthy story of how Papa Bear claimed the Grand Canyon for America. At great personal risk, and wearing nothing but a thin blue wind-breaker, O'Reilly braved the rugged terrain of our nation's most photogenic natural landmark. Culture Warrior goes on to relate how Papa Bear fought off the winged-bear minions of the evil Queen Isabella so that he could personally plant the American Flag in the Canyon's hard, rocky soil.
