We all have already dreamed about this place. The state Arizona, located in the southwest of the USA, is known for its desert climate with very hot summers and mild winter. More than 25% of the country is the home of 27 different Native American tribes including the Navajo! Most parts of this area still look like the landscapes you have seen in classics movies like Once Upon a Time in the West or 2001, a space odyssey, and you can imagine how it feels to be there (crazy).
We have selected for you 5 insane places to see there, so your road-trip will be unforgettable.
Saguaro national park in Tucson
The first one is the Saguaro national park, in Tucson. Because you have already saw this place in more than 40 western movies such as Rio Bravo or Little House on the prairie. This is just a breathtaking scenery, full of huge cactuses and desert views. This place is just amazing but can be a bit dangerous: there are some rattlesnakes in the area, watch out where you walk!
It is one of the most amazing places to hike! And you can go there by helicopter as well! It is exactly like you have seen it in the pictures: spectacular, with clear, light blue waters and a huge and powerful waterfall above the main pool. It is better to swim in the other swimming holes downstream. A place where you can spend an entire day chilling!
“The world’s best-preserved meteorite impact site on Earth” is there, in the middle of the northern Arizona desert. This crater is 1km diameter and 170 m deep. It crushed there 50000 years ago at an average speed of 12 km/h! A platform has been built along one side of the crater to observe its astonishing majesty.
People who have already been there once or even ten times know what it is about. It is about breathtaking views, surprise, fascination, beauty, fear, wonderment and freedom. Pictures speak for themselves.
