Arizona is probably best known as home of the Grand Canyon. But the state has much more to offer
than the "biggest ditch in the world". It has mountains, forests, deserts, and oh yes
that big ditch we all know about. Some other areas in Arizona that we would like to visit
eventually include Saguaro National Park, Antelope Canyon, Monument Valley... not to mention being
part of the one area in the United States where you can stand in four states at once.
Okay, so that last one isn't unique to Arizona, and it's not really a national park. But it's
still on the list.

Petrified Forest National Park was first formed back in 1906. The park was formed then, the logs
started their life more than 200 million years before that. Start as a seed, grow up to
150 feet or more, fall in a swamp, turn to stone... it's one way to time travel, but we don't
recommend it. But you can read about our trip (and see some pictures, naturally) if you like.
The red rock formations of Utah are often found in desert-like environments. Sedona features beautiful
formations surrounded by evergreen foliage and running water. If you go, be sure to check out Cathedral
Rock, one of the more photogenic areas outside of town.
