17 Sites In Arizona That Will Remind You How Stunning America Truly Is
The United States happens to exist on one stunning piece of land. Perhaps I’m biased, but it is my personal opinion that Arizona makes this place appear even more beautiful, thanks to our diverse and colorful landscapes. Check out some of the places in Arizona that make this country a beautiful one:

A smooth, sandstone slot canyon in a stunning color palette? I can think of few better ways to start off this list.
2. Canyon de Chelly National Monument
Located on the Navajo Nation in Chinle, this canyon is home to families, history, and a beautiful addition to our national parks.
