The size, shape, and color of Grand Canyon National Park combine to leave an impression on visitors as deep as the canyon itself.
Step off the beaten path and head to Kolb Studio and Hermit Trail. Navajo Bridge and Grand Canyon Railway Depot will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Grand Canyon National Park: Mooney Falls (in Supai) and Vermillion Cliffs Scenic Highway (in Marble Canyon).
