The Southwestern United States is a vast area containing magnificent and unique landscapes that can be seen nowhere else in the world. The area ranges from grasslands and meadows to great deserts with flora, fauna and geology found in no other place. The area is bounded by the country of Mexico on the south and on the north by the states of Idaho and Montana. California and the Rocky Mountains make up the western and eastern boundries. At the center of this vast land area is a geological formation known as the Colorado Plateau which was once an enormous inland sea. Today, this area contains the greatest concentration of national parks in the U.S., including one of the natural wonders of the world - the Grand Canyon of Arizona.
In addition to magnificent landscapes with unique geological wonders, the Southwest is also rich with Native American cultures whose peoples have inhabited this area for thousands of years, and still do today. It is also an area rich with the traditions of Mexico and the spirit of the early Western cowboys.
With the combinations of spectacular scenery, vibrant cultures and weather that averages 350 days of sunshine per year, the Southwest is one of the most unique places in the world to visit.
