Arizona's Natural Beauty
Arizona has 27 State Parks and numerous natural wonders that provide access to a wide variety of activities, fauna and flora, and landscapes. The Sonoran Desert and Sagauro National Park feature typical desert scenery, with canyons, red cliffs and sandstone pinnacles, and the giant multi-armed cacti that typify the Arizonian landscape. The Painted Desert and the magnificent sandstone spires of Monument Valley in the northeast, the spectacular Red Rock Country of Sedona, and the mountains and forests of Flagstaff are just some of Arizona’s other natural attractions.
The north of the state is crisscrossed with canyons, mountain streams, ponderosa pine forests, alpine meadows and snow-capped peaks. In the south and west are red deserts with stunning rock formations, Native American tribes, ghost towns from gold and silver mining days and deep blue skies.
