    Presents an introduction to the Grand Canyon, including how it formed, its end-to-end exploration in the late s, the early native people who lived there, and its varied wildlife.   The Grand Canyon is a mile-deep gorge in northern Arizona. Scientists estimate the canyon may have formed 5 to 6 million years ago when the Colorado River.

    However, we don’t have dinosaur fossils in the Grand Canyon. They are in strata which are above the Grand Canyon rocks, and can be found towards the north. They are in Mesozoic rocks, which according to Figure , is Late-Flood, or the period of receding water.   The Grand Canyon is about miles long and, in places, over a mile deep. Its walls reveal 21 distinct layers of mostly sedimentary rock. The deepest, and presumably oldest, layers of sedimentary rock in the Grand Canyon are collectively known as Precambrian strata. For over years, geologists have searched for fossils in Precambrian layers.
