Babbitt's--where girls with pearl earrings go for backpacking gear
In downtown Flagstaff, check out out the sandstone building from the 1880's on the corner of Aspen & San Francisco--you'll find out where the Girl with the Pearl Earring gets her outdoor supplies... As the gateway to northern Arizona ski country and the Grand Canyon, this mountain college-town has several outdoor outfitters, but the most venerable is Babbitt's. Under the vintage tin ceiling, you'll find all you need for the outdoors, from crampons to hiking-pants that zip off into shorts. Classes are available and rental gear as well. Looking for a good place to eat or where to get the best microbrew? Ask the staff--they're friendly and, as you'd expect hikers and skiers in a college-town to be, well-informed when it comes to burgers, beer, and beyond...
