A Visit To Arizona’s Badlands Is Perfect For Your Next Outing

Arizona’s badlands are often considered to be more picturesque than the Grand Canyon. Located to the Southeast of Grand Canyon National Park and encompassing a land mass running approximately 60 miles wide and approximately 120 miles from north to south, the unofficial badlands are primarily comprised of the Arizona natural wonder known as The Painted Desert.
