Topped by 10,720-foot Mount Graham, the Pinaleno Mountains are the highest of southeastern Arizona’s sky islands. Surrounded by arid basins, this mountain range rises decisively near the town of Safford. In so doing it provides a dramatic shift in climatic conditions, which in turn supports flora remarkably different from that of the desert below. A hike along the Arcadia National Recreation Trail reveals much about the range’s ecology.
