European Discovery and Exploration of Grand Canyon  

Grand Canyon, while first seen by European explorers many years before Jamestown and Plymouth Rock, was one of the last places in the 48 states to be truly explored – and parts of it have not yet been visited. The course will chronicle the early explorations of the canyon and its environs, from the first view of the canyon in 1540 by Garcia Lopez de Cardenas to the first successful transit of the canyon via the Colorado River by Major John Wesley Powell in 1869.
