Coming back south toward Flagstaff On 89 A, got a couple pictures of THE SAN FRANCISCO PEAKS from their back side. But you could not see them except for the crown
of the peaks and they are so much more beautiful looking at their front side. So we were coming from the opposite direction and were unable to get a good shot.
Flagstaff is a hopping town of about 200,000 but has all the
trimmings of a major city, including its own symphony orchestra!! It's a great summer retreat due to the breezy cool air and yet sunny pretty blue skies, it is much cooler and practical to visit in the summer than Phoenix with it's extreme heat wave in the
desert. But in the winter, much like New York city, it is plagued with blizzards, which is why I call it blizzardville. Sometimes they last into June. Phoenix temps are opposite of flagstaff. The temperatures of Phoenix from late fall to April, are much of
the same as Flagstaff's summers.
We only did a quick stop at a walmart in Flagstaff due to the element of time we had to get to Sedona. We did some quick shopping, but other than that we only rode through the city and mainly
on route 66 until we got back on 89A to continue our journey.
