You won't mistake Arizona for the workaday world. The dirt is red, the sky impossibly huge, and the landscape seems to stretch forever.But the scenery is a mere backdrop to this state's history - and secrets. After all, conquistadors once marched their way through the lush foothills of the Sonoran Desert. Settlers and Indians fought classic battles among cliffs and valleys, while Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday made legends of backwater places called Tombstone and the OK Corral. Hollywood, of course, found it all irresistible.

But don't just sit and watch the cowboys - go be one. A dude ranch is the best place to relive the state's pioneer past, surrounded by true cowpokes and real-life roundups. In comfortable surroundings, gather family and friends around the campfire and discover - or rediscover - that huge Arizona sky.
