...Colorado River did, on its present course, start spilling sediment into Lake Mead six million years ago.

Learned something new today.

I thought Lake Mead was only about 70 years old.

I've seen it, it looks older than that. I'd say 80-85 years old.

The canyon itself doesn't look a day older than 14,000,000 years.
