Greetings from FLAGSTAFF

ARIZONA

"Let's go to Flagstaff" was the yell of days of yore, when the cowboys from far and near cattle-camps raced their ponies to town to "drink 'em up and shoot 'em up".  From the "flagstaff" the US. colors waved over the little band of soldiers stationed at the one street settlement composed chiefly of saloons and Chinese restaurants.
The Flagstaff of today is a bustling little city, mecca of summer visitors lured by its marvelous climate.  It is the gateway to the Grand Canyon National Park, many mountain and lake resorts as well as the vast Indian Country.  Lumbering is the chief industry.
