There are over 120,000 people in the metro area. The elevation is around 7000' . Northern Arizona University is there. The Grand Canyon is not too far. Sedona is 30 miles away.
This is the San Francisco range and the Ponderosa pine forest is the largest in the US. Skiing is a draw and I bet there is mountain biking too. Athletes use this area for altitude training.
I love my riding days and look to find interesting and informative items to share.
