Grand Canyon

As one of the world’s greatest natural wonders, the Grand Canyon is a sight to see. It stretches approximately 277 miles long, up to 18 miles wide and reaches depths of over a mile. The different layers of rock were shaped by the Colorado river over millions of years creating a view that is so amazing it might seem hard to believe.

Visual Adventure Tip: Bring good sunglasses to shield your eyes from the bright desert sun when you’re looking into the canyon.

Antelope Canyon

Antelope Canyon’s walls are made of Navajo Sandstone, shaped by wind and water for hundreds of years. The canyon is cool because of its smooth curves and pretty patterns, but the best part is the light show. When sunlight comes through the narrow openings, it makes an amazing display on the smooth walls, like a natural light show in the canyon.

Visual Adventure Tip: Choose sunglasses with polarized lenses to make the colors and details in the canyon look even more vivid and clear.

Meteor Crater

50,000 years ago, a meteorite that was approximately 150 feet in diameter crashed into Earth. The impact created a nearly 1 mile wide hole in Arizona called Meteor Crater. Walking along the edge of the crater, you’ll be able to see how big the crater is and enjoy the beautiful views of the desert around it.

Visual Adventure Tip: Take quick breaks to blink and give your eyes a little rest while you’re enjoying the amazing views around you.

Saguaro National Park

Saguaro National Park is home to the saguaro cactus, known for how tall it is. Go to the park at sunset and you’ll see the sky come alive with color. This happens because the skies are clear, the air is dry and the sun hits at a special angle.

Visual Adventure Tip: Drink enough water to stay hydrated and to keep your eyes from getting dry.
