Arizona is a rough place with hot air and sand but the reason most people are here is to ride horses and feel the true desert. The desert here makes you work hard and have fun. The most amazing part is seeing the full moon in the middle of the desert. If you ever see a Gila monster do not let it bite you because they are poisonous. The one thing we are known for is the big mighty saguaro cactus at home in the desert. The one thing you don’t want to touch or tap is the jumping cactus. Another unique animal you can see is a roadrunner running through the desert. I don’t think anyone can catch it. Now the beautiful part of the morning is the beautiful sunset rising up to make our day. I’m proud to be an Arizonian because this state offers amazing sites.
