The "Grand Canyon State," Arizona, was the 48th state to join the US on February 14, 1912 - the last of 48 contiguous (connected) states to join the Union. Phoenix is the capitol. The state'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, Arizona state flower is the saguaro cactus blossom.
