VIDEO: Fly-through animation of the Grand Canyon

Enjoy this 7:26 video from the National Park Service which follows the Colorado River through the formation of the Grand Canyon.

Over the course of 6 million years, the Grand Canyon has been carved by the Colorado River. One mile (1.6km) deep, 277 miles (433km) long, and up to 18 miles (28.8km)wide, this canyon is like none other. This animated flight is the product of a partnership between NASA, the NPS, and the USGS.
