AZ postcard: They grow cotton here, ostriches, too

One of the first documents placed in our hands when we arrived in Arizona this week is a list of 100 fun facts about the state.

Just a few highlights:

19. Arizona grows enough cotton each year to make more than one pair of jeans for every person in the United States.

24. Rooster Cogburn Ostrich Ranch in Picacho, AZ, is the largest privately owned ostrich ranch in the world outside South Africa.

59. You could pile four 1,300-foot skyscrapers on top of each other and they still would not reach the rim of the Grand Canyon.
