Nice view

Nice view as we drove along our rt 66 trip. Took several shots as we drove along from different angles on way to town. Snow was pretty on the top.

We drove up to the foothills of the peaks while in Flagg and the air and scenery were wonderful. We got some really nice pics.

We lived here for 17 years and raised two kids. It was some of the best years of my life and enjoyed living there.

We were driving from the Grand Canyon to Sedona and wanted to stop by and see Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff. We had the opportunity to drive past the beautiful San Francisco Peaks on the way, quite a treat for a family of flatlanders! Wish we'd had more time, it looks like a great place for skiing.

The trailhead starts from Snowbowl Ski Resorts lower parking lot. It's gorgeous as the trees turn in Autumn. The hike is mostly in the trees t the beginning. If you go to the top of Mt. Humphreys, allow a few hours. Volcanic ash makes the going slow toward the top. IT has several 'false summits', so don't be fooled that... More

Just about any where in or near Flagstaff, you can see the San Francisco Peaks. A great recreational area, with hiking and skiing. Check out the Snow Bowl and the scenic chair lift.

You can drive or hike or ride the ski lift for a great view of the area. The leaves in the fall are spectacular, In the winter, the snow on the pines looks like a Christmas card. In the summer, it is a ice cool summer day with gorgeous scenery.

It's hard to know how to review the San Francisco Peaks. They are a major landmark and the most recognizable thing about Flagstaff. You don't even need to go see the peaks. They are just there... majestic and looming over the regions. Beautiful!

The drive up the mountain is spectacular, and there are two chairlifts at the top taking you right to the very peaks. A nice trip away from the hustle and bustle of Flagstaff.
