San Francisco Peaks Diane Moore

The San Francisco Peaks are a volcanic mountain range located north of Flagstaff, AZ on the scenic route to the Grand Canyon.  Standing at 12,633 feet, Humphrey’s Peak is the highest point in the state.

The peaks have significant meaning to 13 Native American tribes within the region.  Some believe the spirit world resides within the clouds surrounding the mountains, and attribute the heavy snowfalls on the mountains to the kachinas (ancestor spirits) living there.
Located within the Coconino National Forest, the San Francisco Peaks are a worthwhile side trip when you are venturing to the Grand Canyon.
