The Grand Canyon Lightning Show (14 Photos)

The panoramic views of the Grand Canyon are spectacular enough in normal conditions, let alone during dramatic thunderstorms. Shrouded in darkness, the breath-taking landscape is shocked into life as mother nature sends bolts storming down to Earth.

The Grand Canyon is 277 miles long, 18 miles wide and a mile deep. It was created at least 17 million years ago as the Colorado River and its tributaries sliced through layer after layer of rock cutting their channels while the Colorado Plateau was uplifted.

Bacon is always the answer. Currently working towards an MBA with an emphasis in fantasy football. I have friends in spite of myself. Probably the best meat eater in the world. Trying to change the name from Tweeting to Gregging. Recommended by 4 out of 5 people that recommend things. I’m here to avoid friends on Facebook.
