    I think the mountain is Humphreys Peak, and you are at the Arizona Snowbowl?

    EDIT: You posted while I was still digging, Donna!

    Ah, but you got the "Arizona Snowbowl" name that I couldn't remember!


    I came into this "new" thread late. For good reasons!

    You guys are correct on all counts, so you share the prize (ie., the profound admiration of all the rest of us ;-)!

    I was indeed at the Arizona Snowbowl, on multiple occasions, and in every season of the year. The mountain is known as the San Francisco Peaks, and consists of two summits, Mount Humphreys, and Mount Agassiz, the highest, and the second highest peaks in Arizona, respectively. The San Francisco Peaks dominate the landscape around Flagstaff, and can be seen from many miles away when you approach that city, from just about any direction.

    The ski season at the Snowbowl varies from year to year. It's never great, but it's fun, and for desert dwellers in the big city of Phoenix, just two hours south, it's a popular place to go, even (or maybe especially) in the summer. For anyone who enjoys a good museum, the Museum of Northern Arizona, at the bottom of the hill that leads up to the Snowbowl, is definitely worth a look.

    All of it is part of my Grand Canyon Loop, a Scenic Side Trip that begins and ends in Flagstaff. It's Scenic Side Trip #14 in the book, and it's one of my personal favorites.

    My photo of the Arizona Snowbowl, taken last November on the way to the Denver area for Thanksgiving:



    It was a point-and-shoot from the window of the truck.
