Flagstaff Favorites

I love camping and Flagstaff is a fantastic place to camp! 
Within just a few miles of town...any which way you choose to go...is a
great camping spot.  This past weekend, we headed out bythe Lava Tubes & camped there.  Simply beautiful!

I'll admit, it was a little brisk.  But nothing a nice campfire couldn't handle.

Along with that campfire comes my husband's famous dutch oven breakfast...

My mouth is watering just thinking of it...oh my is it good!

and the antelope play..."

(soooooo wish I had a telephoto lens...oh well, it was an experience...those antelope are fast!)  


MacKenzie told me she'd never seen a deer in the wild.  Really?  They saw wild turkeys the day before, too!

Nature's playground in our own backyard.  What's not to love?


If you're up for an adventure, go visit the Lava Tubes
Make sure to take good, sturdy shoes, a good flashlight & leave
your dogs at home.  The tubes are about 1 mile long & it's
pretty darn rocky in there.  So worth it though!  To get
there, take 180 north past the Snowbowl to mile marker 230.  Turn
left on to forest service road 245.  Go about 2
miles down a nice dirt road & you'll see the entrance. 
You're not seeing any photos of the tubes because a) they're pitch black
& b) I'm still recovering from a broken foot, so I had to stay
at camp with the dogs.  (I said had to like it was a bad
thing...it wasn't.  I read a book...and loved
every second of the peace & quiet.)

  1. Sounds like fun! Especially the staying at camp and reading a book by yourself in the quiet part. I'm jealous.
