For all the things Arizona is, one word may describe it best. Monumental.
Monumental in its landscape. Monumental in its history. Monumental in
its effort to recognize the treasures within these borders and protect
Over the last century, Arizona's people and America's presidents have
worked hand in hand in the name of preservation. Today, Arizona has more
national monuments than any other state in America-18 remarkable destinations.
And so under the official banner of natural wonders, ancient cultures
and early history, this is the story of how one state so magnificently
defines itself: as Monumental Arizona.
