The Long Haul: Road Tripping Through the Arizona Desert
GETTING DOWN IN THE GRAND CANYON
Arizona's nickname is "The Grand Canyon" state, and for good reason. The natural wonder stretches across 277 miles and reaches over 6,000 feet deep in spots, created by the Colorado River carving its way through.
Most visitors enter the canyon at the South Rim, where the park headquarters are located along with a number of hotels and restaurants. Experienced campers can start at the less crowded North Rim from mid-May to mid-October where campsites can be booked online up to six months in advance. The entrance fee for both entry points costs $25 for vehicles and $12 for visitors traveling by foot, bicycle, or motorcycle.
