Phoenix and the Salt River Valley from South Mountain Park, Phoenix, Arizona USA
Arizona
The vast Salt River Valley, also known as the Valley of the Sun, stretches for miles north of the imposing South Mountains. Almost the entire range of the mountains is located in a huge city park called, appropriately, South Mountain Park. With over 16,000 acres, South Mountain Park/Preserve is one of the largest municipal parks in the United States, according to the Trust for Public Land. It boasts 51 miles of primary trails for horseback riding, hiking and mountain biking for all ability levels. The Park is the home to many forms of wildlife, including coyotes and many other small animals. The desert vegetation is typically that of the Arizona Sonora Desert. Phoenix, the principle city in the Salt River Valley, is the sixth largest city in the United States with about 4.2 million people. Unfortunately, like many large cities, Phoenix battles with air quality and the famous clear desert air is often full of haze.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
