Every year, a staggering five million people flock to Arizona to see the Grand Canyon’s sweeping views, hike its trails, and hop on a mule for a trip through the vast canyon. What looks timeless is constantly changing: The Grand Canyon’s variegated layers encode two billion years of Earth’s history.

The twin streams of Havasu Falls splash down into a turquoise pool. The falls are located on the Havasupai Indian Reservation, which lies just outside two billion years of Earth’s history.
