A visit to the Grand Canyon
In September 1540, a group of Spanish explorers were searching for seven golden cities that they had been told about. Suddenly, they came to the edge of what appeared to be a huge cut in the Earth. There seemed to be no way to walk around this deep canyon. MISSING SENTENCE 1 Eventually, the group turned back to the south. Today, history recognizes them as the first Europeans to see the Grand Canyon, formed by the Colorado River. They had reached a place that today is considered one of the most beautiful, strange, and interesting places in the world. European explorers did not return to the Grand Canyon for more than two centuries. Instead, native peoples continued to live there, as they had for hundreds or perhaps thousands of years.
During the nineteenth century, the population of the United States was expanding rapidly to the west. The Grand Canyon was considered a barrier to travellers. MISSING SENTENCE 2 In May 1869, Major John Wesley Powell and nine others began the first full exploration of the Colorado River. They put four wooden boats into the water at Green River Station in Wyoming. Major Powell wrote in his book that they were beginning ‘the trip down the Great Unknown’. Major Powell had served in the Union army during the American Civil War when he lost his right arm in a battle. After the war he became a professor of geology at Illinois Wesleyan University. He also studied palaeontology, the science of life existing in different periods of Earth’s history. As he was also expert in ethnology, the study of different cultures, he was the right person to explore the Grand Canyon. He was someone who could describe the geology of the area, as well as learn about the groups of American Indians who had begun living in the canyon as many as nine thousand years ago. MISSING SENTENCE 3
Today, the Grand Canyon is in a national park. MISSING SENTENCE 4 They stop at its edge and look in wonder at a place that can create great emotions in those seeing it. Others walk down the many paths into the canyon. Some tourists ride rubber boats down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. River guides are experts at taking the boats through the most violent rapids. MISSING SENTENCE 5 Generally, the trip takes about two weeks in boats that carry three or four people. Bigger boats with motors that carry about twenty people can make the trip in several days. As people float down the river, they see the many wonderful and strange shapes created by the forces of nature. MISSING SENTENCE 6 They experience the excitement of traveling through white-water rapids, and sleeping under the stars. The sound of the river is always present, sometimes loud, sometimes soft. After several days traveling on and sleeping near the river as it flows through the Grand Canyon, many visitors say they feel their cares and worries leave them. Their concerns are replaced by a feeling of wonder about the canyon and the powers of natur.
