Writers & Explorers



     Flagstaff and Northern Arizona  has long been an area that has attracted those who study, those who observe, those who document, and those who explore.  The wide variety of natural wonders and the unique historical heritage that are found here weave a rich tapestry of ecology, geology, natural history, and archaeology that many have studied and documented through the written word, scientific endeavor, the camera, and even the paintbrush.

     When Percival Lowell established his observatory on Mars Hill overlooking downtown Flagstaff back in 1894, he paved the way for Flagstaff to be the crossroads of the intelligentsia that were both drawn to Northern Arizona, and the fostering of the cultural side of Flagstaff.  Dr. Harold Colton continued this tradition when in 1928 he and his wife established the Museum of Northern Arizona with the goal of collecting and preserving the plethora of archaeological treasures found in our area, and the study of the natural history of the Colorado Plateau.

     Today, this culture of exploration and study continues, fostered by Northern Arizona University, the Museum of Northern Arizona, the US Geological Survey, and Lowell Observatory.  Flagstaff is home to many scientists, writers, ecologists, astronomers who are not only documenting our area, but exploring this history of our planet and the universe that surrounds us.  We invite you to read and enjoy the articles listed to the left, that were generously provided for inclusion in All Around Flagstaff.
