Report from the Park: Arizona Trip One (Part One)

Arizona is officially known as the “Grand Canyon State,” though Grand Canyon National Park is one of many spectacular sites. A state of extremes, Arizona features the hot and dry Sonoran Desert, the 12,000 foot, pine-covered San Francisco Peaks, and everything in between.

It is also home to several unique national monuments, a vast array of diverse state and urban parks, and beautiful national forests. During the first half of our Arizona immersion trips, Parks in Focus participants get to experience a little bit of all of it.

Highlights from the first half of the first 2011 AZ trip include:

  • An afternoon of sun, swimming, and photography at Dead Horse Ranch State Park
  • Watercolors, watersheds, and bird watching at Marshall Lake in Coconino National Forest
  • A glimpse at Saturn through the telescopes at Lowell Observatory
  • Exploration the lava fields around Sunset Crater National Monument
