Like much of the mountain west, Flagstaff is a place of dichotomy. It speaks of crusty cowboys, college kids, sun burnt tourists, and hardcore mountain bikers.
And so it was no surprise on opening the ammo can that serves as the peak’s register to find both a Tibetan prayer flag and a .45 caliber shell.
In many ways I found the two artifacts a perfect representation of the modern West, one which were waring a cowboyhat with Tevas is perfectly normal.
Which West are you? Answer below.
