Photos: Getting to know the Grand Canyon

The out-of-state and international visitors to the Grand Canyon well outnumber local visitors, according to Mike Buchheit, director of the Grand Canyon Field Institute. The institute, a nonprofit organization established 15 years ago, is the educational arm of the Grand Canyon Association which provides books about the Grand Canyon, teaches classes, conducts hikes and also seeks grants to enrich funding for the park. The association is a partner of Grand Canyon National Park, considered one of the natural wonders of the world, yet known by some as just “a big hole in the ground.”
