Travel through the area and enjoy the varied landscape and the still snow-covered peaks. Birdlife is good too.

We saw these peaks both to and from our trip between Flagstaff and Page. These snow-covered peaks were beautiful and majestic. Great photo opportunities from main highway.

The snow capped peaks were beautiful every time they came in view. We never got very close but we enjoyed constantly seeing them as we drove around Flagstaff.

More snow on the second trip than the first. Beautiful background to almost every park in the area. So interesting to see that these peaks are visible from so many angles.

The San Francisco Peaks are easily seen from Flagstaff. Great place to get a change of scenery and definitely a change of weather. You can see them from miles away and even more clearly in Flagstaff.

We drove up to the Snowbowl on 4/23/15 at 9300 feet above sea level, to see the snow that remained despite the closure for the ski season. It was too early for the chairlift ride, but we'll be back. When we drove from Flagstaff to the grand Canyon we were always in sight of the majestic peaks, when we were... More

Amazing to see the snowy peaks up closer through several days in Flag. Whether capped by a singular cloud in early morning, or through wet flakes in the morning, it was a treat, and from a distance a regal landmark.

This mountain is huge. You could spend most of a lifetime exploring it. There are many trails, ancient ruins, campgrounds, wildlife, birding, a ski lift and runs, and the tallest peak in Arizona. No one activity here might match a visit to nearby Grand Canyon, but in total, great access and adventure awaits. C. Hart Merriam defined his famous Life... More

We drove to Grand Canyon and the road is near San Francisco peaks so it look amazing because around area is flat and peaks are in snow.
