If you imagine Arizona as a desert and scrubland, with only the occasional huge cactus dotted over an arid landscape – be prepared for a big surprise!
In fact in the USA’s sixth largest State, the terrain varies from desert to alpine, there’s an abundance of trees and plants…and more than 60% of all types of wildlife species to be found in North America!
Arizona’s unique geological formations culminate in the awesome Grand Canyon, rising majestically above the Colorado River.
Monument Valley has provided a natural setting for many western films and visits to these sites, the ancient Indian ruins at Canyon de Chelly, the spectacular Red Rock country around Sedona and the huge meteorite crater near Winslow should all be included in your itinerary.
Rich in frontierland folklaw, homeland of the Apaches and Tombstone, scene of the gunfight at the OK Corral, these and many milestones of memory are to be discovered in colourful Arizona.
