ARIZONA STRIP

Arizona

The Arizona Strip is the part of Arizona lying north of the Colorado River. The difficulty of crossing the Grand Canyon causes this region to have more physical and cultural connections with southern Utah and Nevada than with the rest of Arizona.


LOCATION

TBD


DESCRIPTION

2.8 million acres in the northwest part of Arizona.
There are no paved roads and no facilities on most of The Strip.


HISTORY

From a strictly geographic point of view, it would seem the Arizona Strip should be part of Utah. For a history and discussion of why it is not, click here.
