Lynn and I up in Flag for the weekend for NAU graduation ceremonies. Left the minivan at the hotel and walked to the Walkup Dome via the urban trails. Managed to get a table for 13 at the Beaver Street Brewery for lunch. Rail Road Oatmeal Stout http://www.beaverstreetbrewery.com/bsbeers.html always satisfies...
1 inch of snow fell last night causing this trail to be slightly muddy with packed snow in the shaddy areas. Regardless, this was nice gentle run along the Rio de Flag with impressive canyon walls and wetland at the end of the trail.
Some Flagstaff friends and their son took us on this short trip.
