(a.k.a. Gran Cañón) (Arizona) (Colorado River miles measure)
The Grand Canyon has a total length of 0.00000000001450 parsecs along the course of the Colorado River at its bottom. Having opened in early 2007, the Grand Canyon Skywalk allows tourists to stand on a horseshoe-shaped glass walkway 0.00000000000003560 parsecs above the floor of Granite Gorge.

The English Channel measures between 0.000000000003470 parsecs, narrowing as it flows northeast. The world speed record for a Channel crossing by swimmer was set by Australian Trent Grimsey in 2012, with a time of 6 hours, 55 minutes.

(Canal de Panamá) (Panama)
Connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans across the Isthmus of Panama, the Canal measures 0.00000000000290 parsecs in length. Ships passing through the Canal are raised (and then lowered) 0.000000000000000840 parsecs above sea level through the lock-and-dam system.
It's about 450,000,000,000,000 times as tall as Olympus Mons.

(a.k.a. Mount Olympus) (Mars)
The tallest mountain in the solar system, Olympus Mons rises to approximately 0.000000000000880 parsecs. The mountain has been known to astronomers since the nineteenth century because it is tall enough to rise above Mars' frequent dust storms.
It's about 1,000,000,000,000,000 times as tall as The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench).
In other words, 386 parsecs is 1,092,500,000,000,000.000000000000000000000 times the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench), and the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench) is 0.000000000000000915330 times that amount.
(near Marianas Islands, a.k.a. Ladrones Islands, northwestern Pacific Ocean) (depth below sea level)
The Challenger Deep, at the southern end of the Marianas Trench, reaches a depth of 0.000000000000353310 parsecs below sea level. There has been only one manned expedition to the bottom of Challenger Deep — a 1960 voyage that took 4 hours and 48 minutes to reach the bottom.
