Agassiz Peak in Autumn
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
Arizona's second highest point, as seen from the east at Lockett Meadows. Agassiz Peak is considered scared to native people, and lies in the San Francisco Peaks Volcanic Field. Naturalist C. Hart Merriam carried out an extensive "biological survey" here in 1872. At 8,000 ft., Lockett Meadows lies within the "Mixed Conifer Forest Zone," where fir trees & quaking aspen are neighbors. The Inner Basin Trail begins here; on the west side of the meadows at the trailhead parking inside Lockett Meadows Campground.
