Arizona State Guide
Located in the American Southwest, Arizona is a land of desert and pine-covered high country, divided by the enormous Grand Canyon. Ruins and remains of prehistoric civilizations are scattered throughout the desert, and the state capital of Phoenix takes its name from the concept of new life arising from the ashes of the old. Admitted to the union in 1912, Arizona was the 48th and last of the contiguous states to join the U.S.
