You may be aware that many important events in the history of the American West transpired within this area. The San Francisco Peak is located immediately north of Flagstaff, Arizona, and is the Navajo’s Sacred Mountain of the West. Navajos believe that the San Francisco Peak marks the tribe’s rightful Western boundary of the Navajo Nation. The three main peaks making up the San Francisco Peak are Humphrey Peak (11,940 feet), Agassiz peak (12,300 feet), and Freemont Peak (11,940 feet). The name San Francisco is probably applied by Father Marcos DeNiza in 1539. The peaks are noted for their variety of vegetation. The peaks are a favorite place for the collection of herbs and medicine for the Navajo Nation.
