Arizona ranges from tall pine trees and mountains in the north to the sprawling Sonoran Desert valleys and mountains in the south.Most people think of deserts as being sandy, but a desert is defined by the amount of rainfall. The Sonoran Desert is mostly a gritty gravel type of soil, and it is amazing what will grow in it. Cotton and citrus are large crops in the southern part of the state.

There is a slew of history in this small town, Tombstone. From Boot Hill Cemetery on the edge of town, where you will see the grave-sites and witty grave-markers, to the Gun Fights at the OK Corral, and the Stagecoach Tours around the town. Lots of restaurants and saloons, such as Big Nose Kate's Saloon,for the tourists.
