How Old Is The Grand Canyon? And Where Is It?

Leave a comment

Apparently the age of the Grand Canyon is now controversial.  Is it 7 million or 70 million years old?  Scientists are debating.  But, when I visited the Grand Canyon, the question I heard most often was not “How old is the Grand Canyon?”  It was “Where is the Grand Canyon?”  We were standing next to the information building with tons of shuttle buses coming and going and people kept coming up to us (apparent experts) and asking where the actual Grand Canyon was.  These were people who had driven thousands of miles and were standing right in the middle of the Grand Canyon National Park and couldn’t find the canyon itself.  My answer:  “Dude, get on the shuttle bus.”
