Little Grand Canyon

Everyone has heard of the Grand Canyon in the USA --

And many of you have seen it in person.

Those of you who haven't seen it have surely seen pictures of it.

And as you viewed it, either in person or the photos, you have noticed and  likely wondered about the many many layers and why they are so flat and level -- like a stack of pancakes.

As you wondered you were repeatedly told that it took millions of years to form the stack of layers and that it usually it took about a million years to form each layer. 

You were also told that it took thousands of years or more for the Colorado River to be formed.

But, you thought -- if that is true, where is the erosion in the layers that should have occurred? 

And How can a layer sit for a million years with no erosion when I see erosion constantly occurring in my yard in just hours and days !

Good questions and good thinking.

Today's video will explain.
