The yearlong summer environment offers miles of trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. The Grand Canyon, one of the natural wonders of the world, is located in Arizona, along with the world's largest Ponderosa pine tree forest.
The "Grand Canyon State," Arizona, was the 48th state to join the US in 1912, the last of 48 contiguous (connected) states to join the Union. Arizona's name comes from arizonac, from two Papago Indian words meaning "place of the young spring." Arizona has a very dry climate and is known for its cactus plants. In fact, the state flower is the saguaro cactus blossom.
