Canyons

First rivers erode the land as they flow by picking up sediments and depositing them. Over many years, more sediment is carried and the river becomes larger. Sometimes there is so much erosion that a path is made on the ground. These paths become valleys, and if they are deep and steep enough, they can become canyons.

Canyons are formed by erosion, specifically running water

CANYONS

This is a picture of the Horseshoe Canyon in Alberta, Canada.

These are pictures of the Grand Canyon in Arizona, in the U.S. It is one of the most famous canyons in the world.

Living in the canyon can be hazardous because of the steep cliffs and raging rivers. As long as the human settlement is not in the canyon itself, it should not face any problems.
