Cover Story
From the Sky Down  
With September here, the hiking map opens up as the weather cools, while winter in the mountains is a few months away. We name some favorite hikes and feature them by elevation.



In Range
Arts & Sciences
With Flagstaff Festival of Science hitting at the end of this month and school life well under way, we thought it would be a great time to meet some Flagstaff scientists and naturalists who took the arts and sciences combination seriously, as they work to be both scientific and creative.

DEPARTMENTS

THE DISH
Pizza Furiosa has created incredible food in an incredible space. The restaurant is a deconstructed, re-imagined idea of what a good local pizza joint can be—with some of the best slices in town..

BY THE BOTTLE
Northern California’s Lake County is producing some exemplary wines that have caught the attention of our wine expert.


THE ARTIST PROFILE
With the summer winding down, our resident wine expert shares some favorite wines to consider pairing with barbecue.

SOUND & STAGE
The Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra is readying for its 64th season, and we learn about some highlights—and get some insights—into this concert year.

MIND & BODY
When it comes to September stress can build in the transition. Students go back to school and life transitions from summer toward fall, leaving less light to exercise and play outdoors. So, we talk to a local expert about ways to bust the stress.


NATURAL SELECTIONS
This month we have the Harvest Moon, the one that is closest to the Autumnal Equinox and known for rising at almost the same time for a number of nights. We learn about how this and other full moons are especially bright in northern Arizona, with our high altitude and low humidity, leading to popular moonlight hikes.

HOME DISTINCTIONS
A home not far from downtown Flagstaff is a bungalow that has been doubled in size, while retaining all its charm.

BEHIND THE WHEEL
Our resident car expert shares the ins and outs of the different kinds of motor oils on the market and makes some suggestions on what to use and the timing of the oil changes.
