Arizona's State Lands: A Duel In The Desert

As Arizona struggles with sprawl, the battle over state trust lands is heating up.

"The Sonoran desert on the outskirts of Scottsdale, Ariz., used to be a playground for motocyclists, rabbit hunters and high school boondockers. Today, it's ground zero in the debate over state trust lands, and Arizona's struggle with sprawl...Suburban state land has gradually become - depending on how you look at it - either prime real estate or prized backyard open space. No matter which side you're on, it's become well worth a fight. In Arizona, that fight is about to get serious. "
