Arizona, the 48th and last state admitted in the continental United States, celebrated its centennial in 2012. It's best known for having the Grand Canyon, the Saguaro cactus and the Sonoran desert, and plenty of other noteworthy attractions. And for being really hot. The Grand Canyon state offers unique interesting subjects seen nowhere else in the United States or the rest of the Earth.

There's a reason this area of the state is called the Valley of the Sun: It experiences most of the high temperatures in the state, particularly during summer (the highest temperature ever recorded in Phoenix was something like ''128º Fahrenheit''. Contrary to locals' time-worn assertions that "at least it's a ''dry'' heat", Phoenix and its surrounding cities usually experience a few weeks of humidity during the annual monsoon season.
