This is one of the prettiest hiking areas in Flagstaff. Lockett Meadow is a popular summer destination for campers and hikers seeking cooler temperatures. Then in October, the big attraction is the changing colors of the aspens --- a joy for photographers. After navigating the narrow U.S. Forest Service road to Lockett Meadow and the Inner Basin Trail, your reward... More

The S F Peaks are the remains of five different volcanoes that erupted about four million years ago and have since been glaciated. To the east there was a substantial collapse of the part of one of the Peaks, creating the Inner Basin. The highest elevation in the state of Arizona is the top of the Peaks and in the... More

After a most hair raising ride up the edge of a mountain to 10,000 Feet you get the most amazing view. It is worth the ride up there, They have campsites for a fee which I am quite sure get sold out in the summer months. Good cheap place to stay though would recommend for families that like to camp.... More

Sitting at 12,660 feet, Humphries the tallest peak in Arizona the view is breath taking. The climb is a trail of many roots and rocks, but not that hard if you take your time.

This was a fun trip that takes you up the ski lift at a much slower speed than winter skiing season to enjoy the views. It was opening day and I expected crowds but it was not that busy, likely because it being too early in the season. It was about 55 degrees at the start and 34 at the... More

Driving from Grand Canyon to Wupatki National Monument, the route takes you through scenic Ponderosa pines with a wonderful view of the San Francisco peaks. Around Memorial Day, we could still see snow on the mountain tops ! Awesome !

Just north of Flagstaff is this mountain. It can be seen for miles as it is over 12,000feet tall. At the end of May it still had some snow on the top which was shinning in the sun. As we went to the Grand Canyon we went through the forest on the south of it and around the west. On... More
