In the America's with David Yetman

The Depths of the Canyon and its Offspring

Phantom Ranch, accessible only by trail, is the Grand Canyon's sole permanent settlement. From there west, the canyon narrows and darkens as the Colorado River carves its way throughthe oldest rock in the Southwest. From the north and south sides, canyons “slots” reach the churning river. Finally, the tamed river meets the placid waters beyond.
