Arizona, a southwestern U.S. state, is best known for the Grand Canyon, the mile-deep chasm carved by the Colorado River. Flagstaff, a ponderosa pine–covered mountain town, is a major gateway to the Grand Canyon. Other natural sites include Saguaro National Park, protecting cactus-filled Sonoran Desert landscape. Tucson is University of Arizona territory and home to the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum.
State Capital: Phoenix.
Arizona is well known for its waterless tracts of desert, however, thanks to many large man-made lakes, it has much more miles of coastline than its reputation may suggest. Amazing landforms as the Grand Canyon and the Painted Desert have actually ended up being global symbols of the region's ruggedness, yet Arizona's environment is so delicate that in many ways it is more threatened by pollution than are New York City and Los Angeles.
Arizona is located in the southwestern quadrant of the coterminous states, surrounded by California to the west, Nevada to the northwest, Utah to the north, New Mexico to the east, and the Mexican state of Sonora to the south. The Colorado River forms the border with California and Nevada. Phoenix, positioned in the south-central part of the state, is the capital and biggest city.
