Road in Arizona, United States

Arid Arizona

The Grand Canyon State is not just about the Grand Canyon. In fact there are many gems waiting to be explored in the world’s wettest desert, the Sonoran Desert in Southern Arizona. Discover them here.

Wikipedia is a good starting point to find out more about Ajo, Mission San Xavier del Bac in Tohono O’odham Nation, Chiricahua Monument, Montezuma “Castle,” Mount Lemmon, Nogales, Organ Pipe Cactus Monument, Saguaro Park, San Pedro Riparian Area, Agua Caliente and Gates Pass in Tucson, Tumacácori Park, and Yuma Territorial Prison.

There are also NPS websites for Chiricahua NM, Montezuma Castle NM, Coronado NF, Juan Bautista de Anza NHT, Organ Pipe Cactus NM, Saguaro NP, San Pedro Riparian NCA, Tumacácori NHP, and Yuma Prison SHP. These are particularly useful if you are planning an actual trip to any of these places.
