LOVELAND, OH (February 26, 2021) – In Issue 2021-38 of Steve Kovacs Fun with Maps, we visit the Grand Canyon.

Deep Cut

Colorado River’s 237 miles long cut into the topography of the earth is up to 18 miles wide and 1 mile deep in northern Arizona.

One of the natural wonders.  But if you see it in person, you might have found it to be so vast that it almost looks unnatural.

Have you seen it?  Have you traveled the river or flown over it?

Part of this area has been designated as the Grand Canyon National Park – established in 1919 on this day.

Here is a magnificent hand painted view of a portion of the Grand Canyon by Holmes from 1882.
