- Northeast Arizona is home to the reservations of the Navajo Nation and the Hopi Tribe. In addition to being part of the famous point where four states - Arizona, Utah, Colorado and New Mexico - come together to share a common border, the region is characterized by sweeping plateaus, towering mesas and scenic canyons. It is home to well-known attractions such as Monument Valley, Canyon de Chelly, Petrified Forest National Park, the Painted Desert and Lake Powell. Miles of painted desert and dramatic terrain form some of the most picturesque sections of the state. Its rolling landscape, endless vistas, and dramatically colored canyons offer numerous outdoor opportunities.
