The San Francisco Peaks outside of Flagstaff, AZ, are a grand sight.

Morman Lake is about 15 SE miles away. It’s not a typical lake at all; it looks more like a crater. Lava activity millions of years ago created the natural bed. When snow packs the lake, snowmobilers and cross-country skiers have a large playground. Windsurfers or kite flying is an option. If you are a bird watcher, you will see bald eagles, falcons, and hawks. Elk love to gather on Morman Lake, too. The road leading to Morman Lake is flat and a haven for cyclists. Yesterday, it was 56 degrees and that typical AZ sun felt warm on my back and face. Here are five shots + one of the area.

      • I do. Used to be a pretty ardent cyclist, pre-kids, no matter the weather. Now I still get out from time to time, but young children make it more difficult to commute on two wheels, and just as difficult to take recreational joy rides. πŸ™‚

        I miss it though. When they’re a little older, I’m sure I’ll get back into it again.

  1. You will have to have them join you πŸ™‚ I used to ride a lot as well. I want to start back up slowly. My problem is too many avocations and not enough hours in the day.

      • Ohhh his name is Bear? How cute!! My late dad used to have a German Shepherd when I was a baby, in fact, he was a huge fan of dogs but when my parents divorced we only had a few smaller dogs πŸ˜€

  3. beautiful photos! the area around Flagstaff is just flat-out gorgeous. I was lucky enough to go skiing there once. I have to admit I’m a bit biased, though – the picture with the adorable fluffy dog is my favorite by far πŸ™‚

    • thank you so much! Bear is a great poser; he always makes my photos better. I can’t capture the vast space and the quiet and the blue sky and how it affects me; even with a good camera, I try, but only give a hint at the beauty. Thanks so much for commenting. πŸ™‚
