Mr. and Mrs. Soto and their son Hector are at the Grand Canyon in Arizona. They are standing behind the railing and looking at the colorful walls of the canyon. The Grand Canyon was carved by the Colorado River many years ago. It is 277 miles long, 4 to 18 miles wide, and over a mile deep.

The Sotos want to learn more about the Grand Canyon. Mr. Soto and Hector want to go on a helicopter tour, but Mrs. Soto is afraid of flying. She wants to take a bus tour around the canyon. The Soto family can’t afford both tours.

What should they do?
