It’s probably no surprise that Arizona’s nickname is the Copper State (or the Grand Canyon State). Most of the land has this fabulous copper colour. Especially stunning is Monument Valley, right on the border with Utah, a desert treasure not to be missed on a road trip through Arizona. Worth a mention – and a visit – is Sedona, which is according to the local tourism agency ‘the most beautiful place on earth‘. And they’re not even that far from the truth.
