Grand Canyon Trivia
The Grand Canyon is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Europeans first saw the Grand Canyon when Hopi guides, whose people had been living in the area for generations, led members of the Coronado Expedition to it in 1540. In 1869, Major John Wesley Powell led the first successful expedition down the Colorado River the full length of the Grand Canyon.
Designated a national monument in 1908, the Grand Canyon became a national park on February 26, 1919. The Grand Canyon's spectacular scenery encompasses 1,900 square miles. The canyon is home to five Native American tribes: the Hopi, Navajo, Havasupai, Paiute, and Hualapai.
