is a tiny settlement surrounded by the Kaibab National Forest ten miles west of Flagstaff
along Interstate 40 (exit 185), elevation 7,300 feet; it includes a small residential estate, a travel center, several other businesses and a large army depot, in the woods to the south. The town is a good alternative for people wanting to avoid the traffic of Flagstaff, though accommodation is very limited. Volcanic hills rise above the forest in most directions, largest being the San Francisco Peaks
to the north; several unpaved tracks lead towards the mountains, one (FR 171) forming a cut-off route to US 180, which reaches the Grand Canyon
after 65 miles.
