The Place In Arizona That Makes You Feel Like You’ve Stepped Through A Magical Wardrobe
Ready to experience a bit of magic in the Grand Canyon State? That’s actually not a difficult feat but if you’re looking to find a place that is reminiscent of the lush landscape described in a beloved children’s book series. While it’s been years since I’ve read any of the books in The Chronicles of Narnia series, I do remember the landscape described as a lush, forested country with mountains and hills. There is one spot in particular that looks absolutely heavenly, a place where you could imagine mythical creatures and talking animals roaming and magic happening.
