Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona - Triumphal Arch Rapids

Our virtual tour of America's National Parks continues with the most iconic canyon in the entire world - the Grand Canyon! Tour this pleasant stretch of the Colorado River as it slices through millions of years of geologic layering (represented by the Mesa Biome).

The map highlights a stretch of the river known as Triumphal Arch Rapids. There is an interesting jog in the river here, and beautifully dissected deep valleys in every direction.

This is a great map to explore this exotic terrain from the comfort of your own home! Build yourself a campground and take turns rafting up and down the river. This is perhaps the best use of the Mesa Biome that there is!
