Volcanic activity, which is always associated with tectonic activity and movement, gave rise to the great geological faults which in turn provided fractures on the earth's crust creating deep cracks, some 5,900 feet deep. With the passage of time, and the action of rain water and subterranean currents, rivers appeared and flowed at the base of the canyons, eroding their beds. The result of these millions of years ...
