Scenic Northern AZ


















 

 
       

     Flagstaff is located on the southwestern edge of the Colorado Plateau, an area that is world-renowned for its varied landscapes and wildlife with terrain ranging from snow-capped mountains to deeply carved canyons.  The Colorado Plateau has the greatest concentration of National Parks of any area of the United States, one of the most famous being Grand Canyon National Park, just a few hours north of Flagstaff.  Hiking into the canyon is like taking a trip back in time, proceeding down through ancient rock layers, carved and exposed by the unrelenting Colorado River, seeing the remnants of ancient seas that used to cover the area and the vibrant life that lived in them.
     To the north of Flagstaff are the San Francisco Peaks, the most dominant feature of the extensive San Francisco Volcanic Field and is comprised of almost 600 vents and cinder cones.  The most recently active volcano here is Sunset Crater National Monument, just to the northeast of Flagstaff.  Sunset Crater last erupted about 950 years ago, displacing the local residents in the Wupatki area in what must have been a terrifying display of nature.
     To the south of Flagstaff is Oak Creek Canyon and Sedona, arguably one of the most beautiful areas in Arizona with the Sycamore shaded waters of Oak Creek opening to the beautiful red rock canyons within which the town of Sedona is located.
