The front of the Weatherford Hotel on a Fall day. As you can see from the historic photo on their website, the hotel facade hasn't changed much in the last 100 years. On New Year's Eve, the city holds an event where a huge pine cone is lowered from the top of the Weatherford to the street and is timed to reach street level right at midnight. I guess it's supposed to be a Flagstaff version of the ball-drop at Times Square in New York. It's a little hokey, but it gives you something to do downtown.
