From the canyon floor we dont get an idea of large the canyon really is. Thats because the surrounding elevation is about 300 meters high blocking most of the view beyond which is the plateau and after that the rim begins to rise

Civilization is a couple of hundred feet away.
Restaurants, Transit service, Cars, Roads and Gift Shops.
