Arizona - Geological Wonders

When most people think of Arizona, the first thing that comes to mind is probably "desert", which is certainly not wrong given that the state is the fourth driest in the nation. However, while the capital and largest city of the state, Phoenix, is within a hot desert climate as expected, the northern portions of the state are wetter and quite mountainous. Just take a two hour drive north from Phoenix, the hottest city in the country, and you'll find yourself in the town of Flagstaff, which receives about 100 inches of snow per year on average and is one of the snowiest places in the country! But Arizona is still more than just deserts and mountains; it's a geologist's dream. The state's biggest claim to fame is the Grand Canyon, which is widely considered to be one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, though no official list exists. The deep and expansive canyon exhibits miles upon miles of exposed rock layers, making it the perfect site for geologic research and an extremely popular tourist destination. Between the draw of the Grand Canyon and its position between the two most populous states of California and Texas, Arizona sees a significant amount of traffic on their interstate highways, which include:

  • I-8, which splits off from I-10 south of Phoenix and continues west though Yuma and eventually to San Diego, CA.
  • I-10, which runs from southeastern Arizona through Tuscon and Phoenix and continues west to Los Angeles.
  • I-17, connects Phoenix and Flagstaff.
  • I-19, goes south from Tuscon to the USA-Mexico border and town of Nogales.
  • I-40, runs east-west across the state, passing through Flagstaff. Leads to Albuquerque, NM going east, and Bakersfield, CA to the west.
