Arizona Turns 100

Arizona achieved statehood on February 14, 1912. To help celebrate this centenary we present you with a selection of outstanding photographs of the 48th State of the Union. From the desert climate in its southern half, with its very hot summers and mild winters to its northern half of pine and plateau there is always something to astonish in Arizona. Be dazzled.
