photoblog image Kendrick Peak

Kendrick Peak

 

Most of the mountains and hills in Northern Arizona are, in fact, dome volcanos or cinder cones within the San Francisco Volcanic Field.  Here you see Kendrick showing off an obvious volcanic shape, rising to a height of 10,425 feet (3,178 m).  The blow hole area is colored with the changing Aspens.  Volcanic areas can be very fertile growing areas for certain plants - and it seems Aspens thrive here - along with Engelman Spruce, Rocky Mountain White Fir, Rocky Mountain Bristlecone Pine, Blue Spruce, Rocky Mountain Douglas Fir, and of course - our beloved Ponderosa Pine.

 

Images taken from the slope of Humphreys Peak, at about 8,500 - 9,000 feet.

a plenty of yellow colours - really wonderful! What does do Frank?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes! Frank was bending down to take a photo of a fern!
Glorious autumn colours.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Aren't they gorgeous!
You are lucky to have all this wonderful scenery. and the trees to go with it, in your part of the country.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes we are, Brian! And it's not lost on us, how truly lucky we are!
I thought of the ponderosa pine being there right away with it's propensity to those western fire-prone forests.

I love that big parch on the side of the mountain. I can imagine it being a wonderful home for wildlife.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes, we've let them grow out of control... our fault, not Mother Nature's.
Wonderful images Elizabeth.........they really make the landscape! smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks very much, Martin! They do... the Aspens and the Ponderosa's are sort of a trademark of Northern Arizona!
beautiful fall color scene
