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.
