Miss Arizona Jennifer Sedler
"My favorite place in Arizona is the Sonoran Desert. It is one of the largest and hottest deserts in all of North America, but don't let that fool you. [Hundreds of] species thrive in the harsh conditions and create not only a gorgeous natural spectacle where there is always something to be discovered on a warm, sunny hike, but also a breathtaking backdrop for Arizona's famous sunsets. And when you're out there, you really get a feel for the rich history that has taken place there: the cattle ranchers, the copper mines, the old west showdowns, these are all things that make Arizona special."
