Often considered one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the canyon is actually a gorge carved out of the region’s sandstone bluffs by the Colorado River. You can view the Grand Canyon from the rim, or hike through it, ride a mule or even fly. Whatever way you decide, don't miss it.
2: Monument Valley
Monument Valley has starred in more movies than John Wayne - well maybe not, but the features of the valley are famous because of their recognizable shapes, including The Mittens and The Totem Pole. In the midst of Navajo territory, the sandstone towers have become the defining feature of the American West.
