Points Of Interest At The Grand Canyon
The Grand Canyon is considered one of the natural wonders of the world. The exposed geologic strata rise over a mile above the river. The Grand Canyon is one of the most complete records of geological history that can be seen anywhere in the world.
Geologic formations such as gneiss and schist found at the bottom of the Canyon. They date back 1,800 million years. This geologic incline creates a diversity of biotic communities. Five of the seven life zones are present in the park.
The entire park area is considered to be semi-arid desert. Distinct habitats are located at different elevations along the 8,000 foot elevation gradient. Near the Colorado River, riparian vegetation and sandy beaches prevail. Just above the river corridor a desert scrub community exists with a wide variety of cacti and warm desert scrub species.
A pinyon pine and juniper forest grows above the desert scrub. They can be found up to 6,200 feet. Between 6,200 feet and 8,200 feet ponderosa pines are abundant. On the North Rim, above 8,200 feet, a spruce-fir forest tops out the park.
The dry climate has been instrumental in preserving many prehistoric fossils deep within caves in Grand Canyon’s geologic formations.
