Grand Canyon Frontier

 The entire Grand Canyon border is divided into two parts. North Rim in one part and South Rim on the other. South Rim is open for tourists all year round. 90 percent of the Grand Canyon National Park is part of South Rim. South Rim also has other transport facilities apart from air and rail services.

 On the other hand, North Rim is considered as a relatively remote area of

Grand Canyon. Often the weather in this area is very bad, so the roads are very dangerous. So this area is not always open to viewers.

 Naming history

 There is a history behind the name of this canyon. America's indigenous people live here for thousands of years. The group of indigenous people who lived in this canyon was called Pueblo. The sanctuary is very sacred to them. They call this canyon 'Ongtupqa', which means 'large canyon'.  Originally named as the Grand Canyon from the name given to them. The role of indigenous people in these areas is historically recognized in the field of sustainability. Scientists believe that the Pueblo nation is the first human community living in this valley.


Geological structure

 A magnificent beauty of rocky hills and canyons, 'The Grand Canyon' was created in a wonder of nature. Around the rough stones, surrounded by varied colored mountains, the cracks of the hoop have been made between the colorful mountains. This canyon is made through the crack. The geological structure of this canyon is quite mysterious. Geologists have different opinions on the formation of the structure. However, the Colorado River has an important role in the creation of this huge sandy valley. A recent study suggests that the Colorado River is flowing through the Grand Canyon from at least 17 million years ago today! Since then, the major rivers of the Colorado River and its branches are slowly formed through the flow of rivers and continual erosion. And this resulted in the creation of this canyon.

The main reason of the creation of the canyon

 Many researchers have suggested that the changes in the continuous changes in the river are the main reasons for the creation of this huge canyon. Due to continuous erosion, the direction of the Colorado River has changed many times. The current Colorado River distance from the old Colorado River is about 6 kilometers apart. The current Colorado River has come down quite a lot. A team of researchers examined the stones of the old Colorado River, and found that the old Colorado river flows through the Great Salt Lake on the northwest. But the current Colorado River flows through the direction of the Rio Grande to the south-east, changing the course completely.

 Scientists believe that the direction of this river is constantly changing. Their idea that the canyon will grow several more times after the next two million years. The eight layers spread around this canyon are spreading the history of each time in front of everyone. Because of the deteriorating power of many major rivers, there are various shaped rocks across the entire Grand Canyon.

 Climate change

 This grand canyon is the name of an eternal mystery to the great geologists of the world. The samples of river and wind erosion that are visible are not visible anywhere else in the world. Throughout the entire Grand Canyon, the weather plays a number of different places. For example, when high ridges are covered in ice in the winter, at the same time, in low places, the rain occurs. Heat is hot in summer, and in the winter there is scary cold. In summer the temperature is around 38 degrees Celsius and in the winter the minus falls to 18 degree Celsius. In this Girhate winter snowfall ranges from 60 cm to maximum 370 centimeters in winter.
