TIME
The state of Arizona stays on Mountain Standard Time year-round. However, the Navajo Reservation observes Daylight Savings Time.

Nestled at the base of the San Francisco Peaks at an elevation of 7,000 feet, Flagstaff offers four distinctive seasons. Moderate summer temperatures encourage numerous outdoor activities, and with an average annual snowfall of around 100 inches a year, it’s a haven for winter sports enthusiasts. Meanwhile, fall and spring are both spectacular with either golden aspen leaves or fields of wildflowers.
