Exploring Arizona’s ‘Big Empty’

Passport Season 17 Episode 1 | 26m 20s

It’s big, it’s empty and it’s in a relatively unexplored area of northwestern Arizona. Known affectionately as the “Arizona Strip,” this topographically rough area is free of paved roads and other amenities, but has a rich geological and natural history. Host David Yetman, ecologist Yar Petryszyn and archeologist Jock Favour trek through the “Big Empty” to examine evidence of early settlements.
