We can’t write about every place we go. It’s impossible. Well, maybe not impossible, but quite a stretch. So, we now have our “In Pictures” series, which catalogs some of our memories from places we’ve been that we didn’t write the full-blown, insanely wordy posts that we’re known for.

During our trip to the Grand Canyon on our “Fabric of America” tour, we stayed in the city of Flagstaff, Arizona. And when one thinks of Arizona, it’s usually the desert. Lots and lots of desert. And heat.

Flagstaff is completely different.

Northern Arizona is its own bag of tricks; believe it or not, it was extremely cool when we were there. In August. I’m talking pants and jackets time. Part of that is due to the mountains, and part of that is due to its elevation of nearly 7,000 feet (2100m) above sea level.

Its biodiversity feels entirely separate from the the rest of the state, something that totally shocked us when we arrived.

Anyway, Flagstaff was our base in this part of the country, so here are some pictures of our experiences while there. These include a rainy visit to Walnut Canyon National Monument, just outside of town, which features yet another canyon and some very interesting cave dwellings from the Sinagua people.

If you want more, check out our “Fabric of America” series, as well as our posts about the Grand Canyon and the Little Colorado River Gorge, which are both in the area.
