Geronimo was an Apache Native American Chief. The U.S.A wanted to kick his tribe of their land so they fought and fought. Finally Geronimo was captured. But, they thought he was so fearless that they use his parachute troops as a war cry.
The North Rim is the coldest part of the Grand Canyon. It gets a lot of rain and snow. Flowers such as poppies and cactuses grow there. It takes two days to hike from the top of the Canyon to the bottom and back up again.
