Theses mountains are very impressive, nice to see the snow on the top. You can see them from very far. There is hundreds of trails for nice walk in nature, but bringwarm clothes, lunc and bottle of water and of course your camera.

The view of these peaks was totally a surprise! We had been in Las Vegas where everything is brown and ugly. What a very pleasant surprise to get to Flagstaff and be greeted by these peaks which had recently gotten snow!! And they are visible from many directions! Only wish we would have time to go exploring.

The San Francisco Peaks are located just outside of the beautiful city of Flagstaff, Arizona. The peaks are just under 13,000 feet tall. The Snowbowl Ski Lodge with its lifts an open with the first snow and in the summer the lifts still operate. The peaks have many hiking trails for you to enjoy in the summer. Beautiful place worth...

We were staying in Flagstaff so drove out towards the San Francisco Peaks area. This area is a former volcanic area. Humphreys Peak is the tallest at 12,633 feet. There are numerous trails in the area. We did some hiking. The Navajo consider them sacred mountains.

The peaks and the moutains dominate the scene around Flagstaff and are quite different to the country you see to the north and to the south .
