Five Shots: SF Peaks, Morman Lake


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.
