This ski lift travel up the mountain is an exhilarating experience. The trip is about 30-40 minutes depending on how often they stop. But they fill only every other chair when loading. But when you get to the top, the view is extraordinary. Fantastic. But...More

We were driving to the Grand Canyon through Flagstaff Arizona when the San Francisco Peaks rose up over the horizon. It is a sight to see these regal snow capped mountain peaks as you are driving down the roadway.

Can't say much more about this view, other than it was amazing! The history behind the names is quite interesting as well.
