Long Description:
Hiking any of the trails down from either rim of the Grand Canyon is like opening a book that turns into a time machine that takes you back in time through chapter after chapter of the history of the geology. But there is one section where someone has torn whole chapters out of the book!!

The coordinates were taken at a cross-section display of the Canyon's geology in the South Rim Visitors Center at Mathers Point.
