Thunder River Grand Canyon
Thunder River

Emerging from a cave on the Grand Canyon’s north rim, Thunder River crashes 1/2 mile down the redwall into Tapeats Creek, and is the shortest river in the world. It provides a true desert oasis in a region where the daytime temperatures can reach 120 degrees in the summer. It’s beauty and the fact of its very existence in this harsh environment are astonishing.
