Water Carves Canyons
A canyon starts as a shallow stream that cuts through the bedrock for thousands of years. Over time, the cut gets deeper and the hillside next to it widens. Water cuts canyons like this all over Colorado and around the world. One of the most famous water-carved canyons is the Grand Canyon in Arizona
