It’s not easy to capture the enormity of a canyon that’s 446 kilometres long, about 29 kilometres wide and 1,600 metres deep. Still, we try. The Grand Canyon is the most photographed natural landmark on Instagram – the hashtag #grandcanyon has been posted more than 3.6 million times. Perhaps the best vantage point for getting the full scope of this magnificent geological wonder is from a top–down perspective 617 kilometres above the Earth’s surface.
