The Grand Canyon is a trough 6000 to 7000 feet deep, ten to twenty miles wide, hundreds of miles long, peopled with hundreds of peaks taller than any mountain east of the Rockies, and all ablaze with such color as no Eastern or European landscape ever knew. And as you sit on the brink the Divine Scene-Shifter gives you a new canyon every hour; with each degree of the sun's course the great countersunk mountains fade away and new ones are carved by the westering shadows. The Canyon is not only the hugest but the most varied example on earth of one of the chief factors of earth building -- erosion

Description:
The Canyon is formed of seven systems of rocks from river to rim, called by Major Powell as follows: Black gneiss, variegated quartzite, cliff sandstone, alcove sandstone, redwall limestone, banded sandstone and Aubrey limestone. He then adds: "A wall of homogeneous granite like that in Yosemite, is but a naked wall whether 1000 or 5000 feet high; a mountain covered by pure snow 10,000 feet high as but little more effect on the imagination than a mountain of snow 1000 feet high - it is but more of the same thing, but a facade of seven systems of rock has its sublimity multiplied sevenfold."

Description:
Hamlin Garland thus describes a storm in the Canyon. "The whole vast chasm was roofed with masses of grey clouds ranked closely and hurrying swiftly, all the distracting lines of the Canyon were lost and the haphazard coloring was made harmonious by deep blue curtains of mist. Here was a new phase of the Canyon. I began to understand it had a thousand differing words. It is like a mountain range, a cloud today, a wall of marble tomorrow. When the light falls into it it is harsh, but the storm will transform it into a splendor no mountain range can surpass. Peaks will shift and glow, walls darken, crags take fire, and gray green mesas take on the gleam of opalescent lakes of mountain water."
