Until the early 1900s, Arizona’s majestic Grand Canyon was known to many by the Spanish spelling of its name, Grand Cañon (although the pronunciation remains the same). To the Native Americans, it was “Ongtupqa” to the Hopi and “Wi:kaʼi:la” to the Yavapai.
Grand Cañon of Arizona
220 miles long, 9 to 18 miles wide, a mile deep, and painted like a flower.
The greatest, grandest, most wonderful sight in the world.
