Arizona is a land of vibrant colors and extreme natural beauty. It’s as if everything around you wants to kill you and make you fall in love simultaneously. It’s famous for the Sonoran Desert, which spreads across the state’s southern half. However, Arizona has mountains too. Northern Arizona is dominated by mesas and mountains, including the 12,633 feet Humphry’s peak, which rises above the treeline, and Sedona’s photogenic red rock mesas.
Every trip to Arizona begins in a city, but you’ll soon find yourself drawn into its natural beauty. From the Grand Canyon in the north to the Sonoran Desert in the South, you’ll find a unique and otherworldly landscape dominated by red rocks and prickly plants. You’re always contending with the heat by leaving early, staying up late, drinking lots of water, or avoiding it altogether by coming in the winter. However, the rugged beauty of Arizona makes it all worthwhile.
