Here's some more Grand Canyon news for you: The Seventh Natural Wonder was the second-most-popular park on Instagram in 2015, according to Instagram and Outside magazine.
Grand Canyon National Park trailed only Yosemite National Park in California. Rounding out the top five were Zion National Park (Utah), Rocky Mountain National Park (Colorado) and Yellowstone National Park (Wyoming/Montana/Idaho) among Instagrammers.
It's hardly surprising, given that the Canyon offers infinite photo opportunities. Among those we've covered in Arizona Highways: the Grandview Loop scenic drive, the North Kaibab Trail and Grand Canyon Lodge.
Other parks in the region that made the list include California's Joshua Tree (No. 6) and Utah's Arches (No. 7) and Bryce Canyon (No. 9). There's also Alaska's Denali (No. 17), which our former intern, Kayla Frost, knows a thing or two about.
