Yes and no. As the gorge got increasingly bigger via the river, it was also becoming quite a wind tunnel as well. And the bigger it got still, the more erosion was committed by flash-flooding.

What I'm saying is that river erosion snowballed and invited other erosion methods to become more prevalent.

the goblin wasn't sure though he somehow suspected that it must have been caused by the great weight of America's ever growing deficit at this point, "...well that, or a sudden transition of American housewives complete with their grocery carts from their normal docile state into some great swam of a mass shopping migration from from home to Walmarts and back, though, admittedly, I am first one dismiss this second theory if simply because it infers that they could possibly survive apart from their usual symbiotic state, meaning that interdependent state that they share with the automobile that is..." ventured the goblin

A windtunnel?
Really?
I thought it was closed on the ends like a hole in the ground?

and with that the goblin somehow knew that this would always remain one of those great mysteries, open to conjecture here, and yet something deep within his bowels just signaled to him that it might be that hidden Heinz Baked Beans factory close by that was behind all this, "...so yes, it has to be wind then..." agreed the goblin in his wish to contribute as always

If that was true then all of it would look like a larger-scale Lake Powell. The water does go somewhere. Where the water goes, the wind goes.

True.

Question:
Do lakes go to the ocean, or come from it?

EDIT: *Facepalm* Nevermind.
I also have no idea what Lake Powell is.

Lake Powell is an artificially created lake, made by damming up a section of the Grand Canyon.
