Although there are other canyons across the planet, none appear as iconic as Arizona’s remarkable Grand Canyon. From this otherworldly 18-mile wide, 277-mile long canyon and spectacular towering red rock formations of Sedona to the greatest concentration of saguaro cacti on earth and one of the United State’s largest cities, Arizona seems to have it all.
True, there’s no ocean; but there’s still plenty of sand to go around. Natural attractions like Monument Valley on the Arizona-Utah border, Canyon de Chelly in Chinle, Arizona on Navajo tribal lands, the glorious Painted Desert in the four corners region, and the Petrified Forest, named for its large deposits of petrified wood, remain iconic American landscapes.
