From sand dunes in the south-west of the state, to a semi-deserted landscape throughout the mid of the state, to pine forests of the north of the state and again semi-deserted landscapes up there, Arizona has everything to offer to a tourist.
But not only the tourists are enjoying these beautiful spots of this magnificent state. Locals do too.

Arizona sky - cactus, stars

Night In Arizona

The moon is a charring ember
Dying into the dark;
Off in the crouching mountains
Coyotes bark.

The stars are heavy in heaven,
Too great for the sky to hold —
What if they fell and shattered
The earth with gold?

No lights are over the mesa,
The wind is hard and wild,
I stand at the darkened window
And cry like a child.

– by Sara Teasdale
