Favorite Place on Earth

My favorite place on Earth is the deserts of Arizona. When you go to Arizona, most people expect a hot desert and sand. Arizona is home to the Grand Canyon and many interesting deserts with unique plants, animals, and scenery. These are the reasons why Arizona is my favorite place on Earth. The desert is full of scorpions, snakes and cacti , which since I was a little kid and lived out there, have always fascinated me. When you visit the Grand Canyon, no matter how tall you are, you feel insignificant compared to the monstrous canyon. There is a tourist location where they made a catwalk out of glass which allows you to walk out fifteen feet above the canyon and look around. This gives you an amazing view of the size of the canyon. When walking down the path into the mile deep canyon, you can feel the heat reflecting off every rock and boulder you pass. When you reach the bottom, you will find the icy Colorado River. The desert may be a barren, empty landscape but when you actually take a closer look, you can see the wildlife, mountains, and cacti. Another desirable feature about the deserts of the Arizona is the weather. It is nice and warm all year. On the contrary, when you go up higher in the mountains, there is a lot of snow. This makes it a great place to go skiing as well. Something else you can do up in the mountains is downhill biking, which requires special downhill bikes to participate in. Arizona has many unique things about it and that is why it is my favorite place on Earth.
