This Day in History: February 14, 1912
Saddle Up! This is America, this is Arizona!
Arizona’s state motto is Ditat Deus in Latin, translating as “God Enriches.” Its nickname is The Grand Canyon State named for its unmatched vistas riding along its rim. The grand canyon was formed by the uplifting of the Colorado plateau and erosion caused by the Colorado River over a period of 6 million years. Nearly two billion years of the Earth’s history can be observed in the layers of exposed rock. Prehistoric native Americans built settlements within the canyon and its many caves. The Pueblo people considered the Grand Canyon a holy site and made pilgrimages to it.
Watch National Geographic’s breathtaking video, Amazing Flight Over the Grand Canyon. Priceless!
