Arizona Grand Canyon State
*Capital City: Phoenix
The "Grand Canyon State", Arizona, was the 48th state to join the U.S. in 1912 - the last of 48 contiguous (connected) states to join the Union. The state's name comes from arizonac, from two Papago Indian words meaning "place of the young spring". Arizona has a very dry climate and is known for its cactus plants. In fact, the state flower is the saguaro cactus blossom.
*Origin of state's name: Spanish interpretation of "arizuma", an Aztec Indian word meaning "silver-bearing". Also based on Pima Indian word "arizonac" for "little spring place".
