I am proud to be from Arizona. I can be proud to say that it’s a wonderful state to live in for several reasons.

First of all, Arizona is known for many of its geographical features. The Grand Canyon is one of the most well known features in Arizona. That is why Arizona is known as the Grand Canyon State. The Meteor Crater is another geographical feature to talk about. The Meteor Crater is nearly one mile across, 2.4 miles in circumference, and more than 550 feet deep. Arizona is also one of the four corners states along with Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah.

Another thing that’s wonderful about Arizona is the gorgeous scenery. If you want scenery, then go to Sedona. Sedona is usually called Red Rock Country because of its attraction — the stunning red stone formations. Also, the Grand Canyon can provide wonderful sightseeing. I think the most gorgeous scenes are the brilliant sunrises and sunsets. The colors red, orange, and yellow blend in a majestic way.

If you are considering a move to Arizona or becoming an Arizona citizen, then you should be proud for many reasons including the features Arizona is well known for — the gorgeous sights and scenery.
