Canyons & Gorges

Canyons and gorges are erosional features caused by water cutting down through the rock. When canyons occur in sedimentary rocks, millions or even billions of years of earth history can be observed in a single view. The Grand Canyon in the USA is probably the world's most dramatic canyon and is a geological World Heritage Site.
