KOSHKONONG, Mo.– Recent heavy rainfall and flooding has caused a large canyon located in southern Missouri to fill to the brim with water

Grand Gulf, or known as Missouri’s Little Grand Canyon, is full of water right now and is quite a sight to see, especially for those who have seen the canyon empty.

According to information from Missouri State Parks, heavy rains fill the gulf to depths exceeding 100 feet, and the water drains out slowly over a period of several weeks.

Grand Gulf is a cave system with a roof that collapsed an estimated 10,000 years ago. The result is a vertical-walled canyon about three-quarters of a mile long.
