The Grand Canyon is, without a doubt, one of the most spectacular outdoor settings on the planet. But when most people think about it, they conjure up images of the immense rift in the Earth’s surface that stretches for 277 miles (445km) in length and is as wide as 18 miles (29km) at points. What most people don’t know however is that Grand Canyon also has a series of twisting, narrow, labyrinthine canyons that are seldom visited and haven’t been completely explored.
In a few weeks time a new documentary will be unveiled at the 5Point Film Festival entitled Last of the Great Unknowns. That film follows a team of explorers who descended into those canyons and explored some of the more remote areas of the GC, and in the process may have become the first humans to ever see some of those places. The trailer for that documentary is below and it looks amazing.
