Exposed in the walls of AZ's Grand Canyon are numerous faults that document the region's tectonic history.
One of the most famous faults at the Grand Canyon is the Bright Angel Fault.
Originating south of the Canyon, it is orientated NE and slices through
Grand Canyon Village, down past Indian Gardens and Phantom Ranch, and northward up Bright Angel Canyon.
The Bright Angel Trail descends steeply down the broken, shattered rocks along the fault line, providing one of the few "breaks" in the massive cliff faces that generally prohibit descent into the canyon.
(Note the evergreen growing atop the Kiabab limestone spire at bottom center.)
