Fremont Peak is one of the San Francisco Peaks, north of Flagstaff, Arizona.

   This view looks to the southwest, at Fremont Peak (11969 feet, 3648 meters), from the Inner Basin of San Francisco Peak.  This picture was taken in early June, and shows how much snow can accumulate in the highest points in Arizona.  One of the popular hiking trails in these mountains can be seen cutting across the lower right slope.
   The Inner Basin is the result of a cataclysmic "blowout" of a much larger mountain, a stratovolcano, some 400,000 years ago.
