But the vast uninhabited fields may be very surprising. As you move the valley changes its shades, its rhythm and construction. It’s all the same stones, the same sand, but absolutely different.

One of the most popular points of visiting the Grand Canyon located on its south side and is called the South Rim. Turning from the Route 66 near the town of Williams in an hour one can reach the Grand Canyon Village. It is a small town with a couple of hotels and museums which is located right next to the canyon edge. There is a walking trail along the very edge of the gorge. Also anyone can rent a bike.
