Most People Don’t Know Arizona Has A Tundra And It’s Simply Stunning

Have you had a chance to hike the San Francisco Peaks before? I hiked Kachina Trail—which runs five miles one-way across the base of the Peaks—a few summers ago and underestimated just how long a hike over and back would be. Despite how angry my legs were that evening, getting to see the aspens and pines on the verge of changing colors and the delicate forest environment was an amazing experience.
