The Town of Snowflake

Snowflake, Arizona. A place where it is socially acceptable to be snowflake crazy all year long!

...and justice for snowflakes...

Snowflake was not named for the weather. The community, originally known as Silver Creek, was founded in 1878 by Erastus Snow and William Jordan Flake. Some of the residents wanted to name the town after Mr. Snow, and others wanted to name it after Mr. Flake. Even though the desert town's name was not the result of a bad winter, the town of Snowflake is surrounded by the White Mountains. Coincidence?

    How fun is this? You must have wandered around smiling the whole time. What a delightful place-name. Are you wishing you could live there? :)

seldom heard, well must you keep your secrets
locked inside, hidden deep from view?
