Arizona, God Enriches!
What a great motto. When you think of Arizona, do you think of the GRAND CANYON? I do, and it’s probably one of the top National parks in the United States. I don’t want to hammer on just the Grand Canyon, but there are many wonderful photo of this amazing site:
The Grand Canyon is a river valley in the Colorado Plateau that exposes ancient rocks and has a colorful landscape. It is one of the biggest canyons in the world, measuring over 270 miles long, up to 18 miles wide and a mile deep. It was formed by the erosion of the Colorado River over millions of years. It has been inhabited by humans since the last Ice Age and became a national park in 1919. It contains many peaks, buttes, gorges, and ravines within its walls.
Beautiful doesn’t begin to describe it. A flower is beautiful. But this is beautiful the way that a person is beautiful- terrifying with its jagged edges, yet seductive with its crevices that hide so many secrets. –Jeri Smith-Ready

Arizona deserts are hot, but they are beautiful. Most people think of a desert as a lot of sand, but Arizona has beauty in their deserts that keeps this as one of the beautiful states of the US.
It’s been here for almost 50 years so we take it for granted. But when you stop and think about it, the fact that London Bridge stretches across a channel of the Colorado River in Lake Havasu City is about as weird as it gets.
In 1968, Robert P. McCulloch, Sr., the founder of Lake Havasu City, bought the world’s largest antique for $2.46 million.
