Back in Flagstaff, AZ

Thanks for following us all Summer, throughout the almost 1,000 mile AZ to CO bike ride and then on our 485 mile thru hike of the Colorado Trail.

For the past couple of weeks, since completing the Colorado Trail, we’ve been enjoying Flagstaff, AZ where we’ve had a home for almost 10 years (although we haven’t lived here for over 7 years).

It’s a great town to come back to, with tons of hiking & biking trails and we’ve seen a surprising amount of wildlife including deer, coyote, elk, lizards, horny toads and snakes.

Dom picked up a great fatbike – a Salsa Mukluk – for exploring the trails of Flagstaff

We found these young Greater Short-horned Lizards (Phrynosoma hernandesi) in our backyard
