San Francisco Peaks

San Francisco Peaks - one word describes it - beautiful. My adventures took me all around San Francisco peaks. I was amazed that everywhere I drove I could see the snow peaks.

The mountain where the snow never melts. What a view to wake up to every morning and see all day long in all directions.. You can view the mountain for miles away from Flagstaff. From what I read it was a Super Volcano, really something to see.

Driving south on Route 89 we had some magnificent views of the San Francisco Peaks, especially as they were still partially covered by snow. During the drive we had all sorts of weather, ranging from bright sunshine to a blizzard, so we saw the Peaks in all their various stages of beauty.

If you enjoy alpine scenes, this is was you get when you visit Flagstaff. The mountain dominates the scenery. The air is crisp and clean and the sunshine feels great.
