Arizona

Since it was first seen by members of Coronado's expedition in 1540, the Grand Canyon has remained one of the most awesome, enigmatic places in the West. When the Powell Expedition finally made the first recorded journey down the canyon in 1869, the feat was almost as celebrated as the landing on the moon.
