Speaking of hypnotizing lines, you can’t miss out on visiting the Paria Canyon – Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness, located at the border between Northern Arizona and Southern Utah.

If you’re into backpacking, then this is the place to be, as the canyons which were designated in 1984, are known for both easy and exciting trails. Beyond the canyon, you’ll find the Vermilion Cliffs which rise as high as 3,000 feet.

Trust us, you’ll get lost (in the best way) among sandstone slopes, plateaus, serpentine canyons, and escarpments spanning over 110,816 acres. After your trip, you’ll be left wondering why you put off visiting the Paria River Canyon for so long.

    In addition to the Grand Canyon, there are numerous other canyons in Arizona that are also breathtaking. The area around the Grand Canyon is full of them and they can be searched for online.

    Canyon De Chelly outdoes all the canyons above with one possible exception! A truly remarkable natural wonder, located in the heart of the Navajo Nation in northern Arizona, it is steeped in history and is spellbinding to behold!
