This passage travels through beautiful pine, spruce, and aspen forests at high elevation— briefly reaching 9,000 feet—and then transitions down to typical Arizona high-desert terrain. It skirts the west side of the San Francisco Peaks, whose high point, Humphreys Peak, is Arizona’s tallest summit, at 12,633 feet. A culturally significant landform to all of the seven Native American tribes who live nearby, the Peaks figure prominently into myths and history alike. Although they are officially named the San Francisco Peaks, a title given by early Spanish friars in honor of St. Francis of Assisi in 1629, they are known as the Kachina Peaks among many native people and Flagstaff locals. Together, the southern and northern maps for this passage, on the next page and page 246, respectively, provide a comprehensive view of this route, rich with biodiversity.
