Mount Eldon

 Looking North from the Office

 

You've seen my photo's of Mt. Humphreys and the San Francisco Peaks, at the base of which lies our little town of Flagstaff.  I thought I should also show you Mount Elden - as it, too, is quite a prominent landscape feature - with nearly 15 square miles of surface area and peaking out at 9,301 ft (2,835 m). It is one of five large peripheral silicic volcanic features within the greater San Francisco Peaks volcanic field.  Because these features developed within close proximity of the San Francisco Mountain strato-volcano there is a strong likelihood that it is a geologic subsidiary of the larger mountain.

(Thanks Wiki!)

a view like makes it easier to keep working until you retire Elizabeth....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: You are so right!
A friend of mine drove a large part of route 66 some years ago and I happened to mention Flagstaff and he said that he stated there and how nice a place it was.

Just thought I'd mention it smile

PS nice pic
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I'm so glad he had a good experience here, Bill! I sure love our community, and the environment is so beautiful! Thank you for letting me know!

PS - Thank you!
How much work can you get through with such tempting distracting views through the window ?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Well - fortunately I don't have windows in my work area (would make eye exams quite difficult!). So it's only when I come and go that I have the pleasure of seeing this. Which, as you say - is probably a good thing - I might be temped to just sit and stare!!
These have been a lovely set of pictures Elizabeth, just leave the snow behind when you come over in March smile
