Up Arizona » Red Rock Country Slideshow

In the southwest corner of the Colorado Plateau lies the Grand Canyon of the Colorado River. Much of the Plateau's landscape is related, in both appearance and geologic history, to the Grand Canyon. The nickname "Red Rock Country" suggests the brightly colored rock left bare to the view by dryness and erosion. Domes, hoodoos, fins, reefs, goblins, river narrows, natural bridges, and slot canyons are only some of the additional features typical of the Plateau.

Strung along the length of Arizona's famed Route 89A, sandsone monoliths, shaped by the same forces that carved the Grand Canyon, form the vivid backdrop for this sinuous spin through some of the state's most bewitching desert wilderness.
