  7. Colorado River : 1,450 miles Colorado River Did you know that the Colorado River carved out the Grand Canyon? Did you that melting snow from the Rocky Mountains is a water source of the Colorado River? When the snow melts there is flooding. After the snow melts, there can be drought conditions.

  8. Rio Grande Click here for more information about the Rio Grande. • The first Texas ranches or ranchos were set up along the Rio Grande river over 250 years ago by Spanish families from the area that is now Mexico. Many other words we use in Texas such as cowboy (vaquero) and roundup (rodeo) can be traced back to this Spanish heritage. Want to know more?

  9. Red River Red River: 1,290 miles The name "Oklahoma" comes from two Choctaw words: "okla" which means people and "humma" which means red. So the state's name means "red people." • The Red River flows 726 miles between Texas and Oklahoma. CLICK HERE! The Red River is one of the longest rivers of the United States. It flows out of the Texas panhandle, along the Oklahoma/Texas border, and through Louisiana, until it finally joins the Atchafalaya. The Red is a natural tributary of the Mississippi River, but a Corps of Engineers structure now diverts its flow into the Atchafalaya basin.

  10. How was it formed? The truth is that no one knows for sure though there are some pretty good guesses. The chances are that a number of processes combined to create the views that you see in todays Grand Canyon. The most powerful force to have an impact on the Grand Canyon is erosion, primarily by water (and ice) and second by wind. Other forces that contributed to the Canyon's formation are the course of the Colorado River itself, vulcanism, continental drift and slight variations in the earths orbit which in turn causes variations in seasons and climate The Grand Canyon
