USA - Arizona - Mapcard
THE GRAND CANYON STATE
Becoming the 48th state on February 14, 1912, Arizona is ranked sixth in size among all the states. Phoenix, the state's capital since 1889, is also its largest city. Arizona has 15 national monuments (more than any other state) in areas of historic or scenic interest, including Indian ruins, canyons and deserts. The state is famus for its cactus and plants, and the Saguaro cactus blossom is the state flower. Arizona's official state bird is the cactus wren.
