25 Aug 2006. Perhaps this is not news to all you world weary travelers out there, but Flagstaff Arizona is not like the rest of the state. I knew NAU's mascot was the lumberjacks but that did not make any sense to me. Were the saguaros so large and numerous that an entire industry was dedicated to felling them? No, not at all. No saguaros. Only skinny alpine trees. And rain, lots of rain! Many roads were blocked from flooding. All during student move-in day too. Their lumberjack statue in front of the bookstore was defiantly shirtless and the wet brassy torso only added to his chiseled eroticism. Ooh la la!!!
