USA map showing location of Arizona

Arizona is a state in the Southwestern United States. It is the 6th largest and the 14th most populous of the 50 states. Its capital and largest city is Phoenix. Arizona is part of the Four Corners region with Utah to the north, Colorado to the northeast, and New Mexico to the east; (the two RV Gypsies have been to the Four Corners and stood in all 4 states at once). Arizona's other neighboring states are Nevada to the northwest, California to the west and the Mexican states of Sonora and Baja California to the south and southwest.

Arizona is the 48th state and last of the contiguous states to be admitted to the Union, achieving statehood on February 14, 1912. Historically part of the territory of Alta California in New Spain, it became part of independent Mexico in 1821. After being defeated in the Mexican–American War, Mexico ceded much of this territory to the United States in 1848. The southernmost portion of the state was acquired in 1853 through the Gadsden Purchase.

Southern Arizona is known for its desert climate, with very hot summers and mild winters. Northern Arizona features forests of pine, Douglas fir, and spruce trees; the Colorado Plateau; mountain ranges (such as the San Francisco Mountains); as well as large, deep canyons, with much more moderate summer temperatures and significant winter snowfalls.

Below: Passing Dragoon Road sign reminded the two RV Gypsies about how much they enjoyed the Dragoon Mountains in 2009. If you choose to visit that section, be sure to return here. Otherwise, just continue on with this page.

Below: The two RV Gypsies just love the mountains, so although there was no time for them to stop here at this time, Karen Duquette just took photos from the moving RV. They really had to be at Lee Duquette's sister's house by a certain date. But luckily, they have been in this area, as well as many other areas of Arizona in the past.
