Grand Canyon 3D Screensaver
Everyone know about the manmade seven wonders of the world or at least heard about them. However, the modern civilization with its powerful machinery cannot repeat what was created by the mother-nature on the border between the states of Utah and Arizona. We are talking about the Grand Canyon which is a natural formation which is said to be the most fascinating eighth wonder of the world.
A fantastic extraterrestrial scenery appeared more than sixty millions of years ago as the result of the action of the Colorado river on the layers of sandstone, slate and limestone. This is the most striking example of what erosion processes can make with a solid stone: by stretching over a distance of over 400 kilometers, they literally broke a tunnel with a depth of up to one and a half kilometers.
The picturesqueness of these places cannot be described verbally, but the Grand Canyon animated 3D screensaver will let you carry out a virtual voyage along this unique natural formation. You will see how the blistering waters of the Colorado down below carry away hundreds of tons of stones towards the ocean; how beautiful and unusual the incisions of the solid layers of different origins look like, what beautiful patterns can be created by the wind, water and the Sun.
With the help of the screensaver, you will obtain the possibility to contemplate how the clouds are born in the gorges early in the morning and as the Sun keeps moving along the skyline, they break out of the narrow chains of the canyon in order to continue their journey and to stream as a refreshing rain somewhere thousands of kilometers away. The rain is very rare here - on average, it takes place only twice a year which makes the local landscape look like an extraterrestrial one. It is not a coincidence that all of the fiction and popular scientific movies about Mars are made only here. By downloading and installing this moving screensaver for PC, you will be able to investigate the Grand Canyon which is referred to as the pearl of the nature of the Northern America, with your own eyes.
