where Flagstaff
the hike     If you are tired of staying at home all the time due to the Covid pandemic, and want to get fresh air, if you want to escape the excessive heat of Phoenix, then join us for this flat and scenic hike adjacent to the San Francisco peaks in Flagstaff. Walking through the aspen trees and relaxing in the woods, enjoying the cool weather at 8000 feet elevation. This is a 10-mile hike; however if you want to do only part of it, you are welcome to do so. Just have fun and enjoy what Mother Nature offers.
    The hike starts in a forest of fir, spruce, and aspen, through meadows of flowers, past basalt cliffs at 1.5 miles, and a cave, with a very good chance we will see and hear lots of wildlife: butterflies, birds, squirrels, elk, jays, and others.
