The Grand Canyon National Game Preserve (est. 1906) became Grand Canyon National Park by an Act of Congress in 1919.

Grand Canyon National Park covers 1,218,375 acres in northwestern Arizona. It includes 105 miles of the most colorful part of the Colorado River.

The Grad Canyon is known for it's overwhelming size and it's intricate and colorful landscape. Geologically it is significant because of the thick sequence of ancient rocks that are beautifully preserved and exposed in the walls of the canyon.

Lake Powell is a man-made reservoir on the Colorado River, straddling the border between Utah and Arizona. It is arguably the most scenic lake in America, situated in some of Southern Utah's finest red-rock desert country.

Lake Powell boasts over 1,900 miles (3100 KM) of shoreline, more than the entire coast of the western U.S. and has 96 major side canyons.

While visiting Lake Powell, don't miss one of the natural wonders of the world -- Rainbow Bridge, found on the shores of Lake Powell. Called Nonnozhoshi, or "The Rainbow Turned To Stone," by the Navajo, this is the largest natural bridge on earth and stretches 275 feet across a side canyon of Lake Powell.

Bryce Canyon National Park is named for one of a series of horseshoe-shaped amphitheaters carved from the eastern edge of the Paunsaugunt Plateau in southern Utah. Erosion has shaped colorful Claron lime-stones, sandstones and mud-stones into thousands of spires, fins, pinnacles and mazes. Collectively called "Hoodoos," these unique formations are whimsically arranges and tinted with colors too numerous and subtle to name.

Nearly 50 miles of trail invites a longer hike or an overnight backpack. Thirteen overlooks provide and opportunity to stretch your legs and snap some photos. Horseback rides and ranger lead walks, talks, and campfire programs are available throughout the summer.

In the winter, activities include cross-country skiing.
