A Day In The Pines

A couple of weeks ago I was really missing my daughter and decided that it was high time that I saw her. After all it had been at least 2 weeks. Plus my mom had never seen where she goes to school. So I thought it would be a great day trip to drive up to the Pines! We set out and about 2 hours later we were in Flagstaff AZ. Home of Northern Arizona University and the Lumberjacks!

This is the "Visitor Center" It is also the AmTrack Train Station. This is the "hub" of the city really. It is positioned conveniently on "Famous Route 66" ..... Personally, I would like that for a house.... : ) Sweet English Todur .....

Flagstaff is a sweet little town. Very Picturesque! There really isn't a lot of great shopping. We came across a couple of cute little shops but I wasn't thinking and didn't ask to take pictures. So sorry about that.

After taking a tour of NAU we had lunch at the Beaver Street Brewery. I'd give it 2 thumbs up!
We didn't sample the beer but it is brewed on site. It looked very refreshing....

UUUMMMMM! Yummy fries! and a tasty chicken sandwich!

After that it was walking! Flagstaff has a very high altitude and is very hilly. We hit all the major tour spots with in an afternoon. Before heading back to Phoenix we stopped in at Macy's Coffee Shop. This is a cool little spot that actually roasts it's own coffee beans.

Macy's serves some pretty good coffee! I am a major coffee lover so I know! They also have wireless internet so that you can sit and do homework.

So ... to sum it up .... coffee, fries and beer... pretty much the staple of any small college town I think! : 0

Thank you for sharing Flagstaff with us! I have never been there but it feels like I have now that I have taken the tour. The coffee house would be a must stop for me as well!!! Nothing beats a tasty beverage to widen the eyes!

PS: Who is the pretty lassie at the end?
