A historic Arizona route gets national recognition
President Joe Biden is expected to announce a new national monument around the Grand Canyon later Tuesday. Earlier this year, he named an historic Arizona route a National Historic Trail.
It’s called the Butterfield Trail, and before the transcontinental railroad took hold, it was an important link between the eastern and western United States.
