Rob's Humphreys Peak Trip Report
Often visible from Flagstaff, the San Francisco Mountains rise more than a mile above the surrounding grasslands and forests of northern Arizona. Part of the southern Colorado Plateau and topped off with the tallest peak in the state, this mountain area is believed to be the remains of a large strato-volcano. The tree covered basin is actually a huge caldera formed during a series of eruptions beginning about one million years ago.
