We want to help you bring your cat or dog on vacation to the Grand Canyon!!

The Grand Canyon is 277 miles long and up to 18 miles wide, and it is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. The stretch in the National Park (abbreviated NPS here on) is separated into South and North Rims, all completely within Arizona, and bisected by the Colorado River. There is rugged terrain with narrow, rocky trails and steep cliffs. The average distance across the canyon is only 10 miles, and note it is a 5-hour drive and 220 miles between the South Rim Village and the North Rim Village.

The Colorado River formed the Grand Canyon over 3 to 6 million years, and the contours are still eroding. There are more than 70 mammal species, 250 bird species, 25 reptile species, and 5 amphibean species in the Grand Canyon. It was made a national monument in 1908 and a national park in 1919, and the park covers an area is 1900 sq miles and is 190 miles long. The area is populated by 5 Native American tribes, including the Hop, Navajo, Havasupai, Paiute, and Hualapai. Tools have been found in the canyon from Paleo-Indians (ancient natives) dating to 12,000 years ago. The Spanish arrived in the Grand Canyon almost 500 years ago, and tourists started visiting the Grand Canyon in the late 1800's.

Scenery, climate and vegetation are noticably different between north and south rims because of differences in elevation. It is almost like having two parks in one and it takes time, planning and effort to be able to visit both sides of the Canyon in one trip.

Below Yavapai point is 2400 feet above sea level, about 4500 feet below the South Rim and 5400 feet below the North Rim, but an average depth of about one mile.

The South Rim is most popular (90% of visitors) and it is open yearround. The South Rim is on the Arizona side, and it has an airport and rail service and is a 90 minute drive from I-40 and the cities of Williams and Flagstaff, Arizona, and 4 hour drive to Phoenix. The North Rim of the park is located on the Utah side of the canyon, at 8000 ft it is 1000 ft higher than the South Rim, and it is more remote and harder to get to, only open May 15th through October 15; the North Rim entrance is near the Ghost Town of Ryan, AZ, 30 miles south of Jacob Lake, although the actual rim of the Grand Canyon and visitor service center are another 14 miles south of the entrance station ); no airport or rail service to the park.

Other interesting facts about the region are that Arizona is the number one copper producing state in the nation, and Arizona has the largest percentage of land in any state set aside for Native American use. There are 11.2 million aces of National Forest and one-fourth of the state is forested. Interesting laws include that it is illegal to keep a donkey in your bathrub or refuse a person a glass of water, and if you cut down a Saguaro Cactus you could face 25 years in prison. The highest point in the state is Humphrey's Peak in Flatstaff (12,637 feet), and the lowest point is on the Colorado River at just 70 feet above sea level.

Keep in mind, the Grand Canyon is best seen at the "golden hours," the hour after sunrise and before sunset, when the light is low and the walls of the canyon turn amazing shades of red and orange as the light plays off the colorful rocks and crevices.
