about Flagstaff

Flagstaff (NavajoKinłání) is a city located in Coconino County in northern Arizona, in the west of the United States. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 52,894. It is the county seat , an important railroad town and home to Lowell Observatory and Northern Arizona University.

The city's name commemorates a Ponderosa Pine tree made into a tall flagpole in 1876 celebrating the United States Centennial.

Flagstaff lies near the southwestern edge of the Colorado Plateau and along the western side of the largest stand of ponderosa pine in the United States at an elevation around 7,000 ft (2,000 m). Humphreys Peak, an ancient volcano and the highest point in Arizona at 12,633 ft (3,850 m), is immediately north of Flagstaff in the Kachina Peaks Wilderness of the San Francisco Mountain range. Old Route 66 (now Interstate 40) runs through Flagstaff between Barstow, California and the cities to the east and connects to the northern end of Interstate 17 which runs about a two and one-half hour drive south to end at Phoenix, Arizona. The town's name is mentioned in the lyrics to the song, "Route 66".

Besides winter snow skiing at the Arizona Snow Bowl lodge south of Humphreys Peak, nearby tourist attractions include Walnut Canyon National Park, Sunset Crater National Monument (volcano) and Barringer Crater (meteor crater), while Grand Canyon National Park (about an one hour drive north) and Glen Canyon National Recreation Area (about a three hour drive) further up the Colorado River from the Grand Canyon are relatively close.

Weather in Flagstaff is very diverse with moderate summers and cold winters. Surprisingly, summer nights occasionally fall near freezing while day time highs reach beyond the upper 80s. Rain averages around 22 in/year (560 mm/year) not to mention plenty of snow in the winter.
