Few People Know Arizona Is Home To Two Hidden Grand Canyons
Although the world wonder inspiring our state’s nickname will always be number one, even us native Arizonans can admit there’s never really a good time to visit. Tourists abound all year long, chaos and crowds prevent the serenity and oneness with nature that so many people travel here to seek. Luckily, there’s an alternative available.
Though Arizona’s Painted Desert is one of our state’s most famed attractions, few people know about the two remote canyons situated on its outskirts. Located on Navajo land in Tuba City, these isolated gorges are seldom visited and virtually untouched.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
