Like all the views in this park, a short walk to see it and well worth your time to view this one and all of them! It is really deep!

At this point, the Black Canyon is so deep the Empire State Building could stand within it and scarcely reach 3/4 of the way to the top. Graphics illustrating this fact reveal the extraordinary depth of the canyon compared to man-made things that we consider...More
