Kenna in the Southwest #2!!

 Hi everyone! I went to the Grand Canyon, the Colorado river, Bricktown, Canyon de Chelly National Monument, and The Alamo.  The Grand Canyon has 5,000,000 visitors each year!! It was not officially a national park until February 26,1919, which is my brothers' birthday!! They're a lot of California Condors that live there, and in case you're wondering, those are HUGE birds with a wingspan of  5 feet! The Colorado River has 242,000 square miles of land!! The depth can range from 6 feet to 90 feet! In Bricktown, the railroad was the engine that 'provided the lifeblood of early economic development'. The most important money crop was by far cotton. In the Canyon de Chelly, they're sheer sandstone walls that are 1,000 feet tall! They're many well preserved Anasazi ruins. In the Alamo, construction for it began on the present site in 1724. It was originally named 'Mission San Antonio de Valero. Well, that's all for now!
