AZ: I Found Snow In The Desert

La Nina has given The Arizona desert two crappy winters in a row. Sunday we got our first rain in over three months. Conditions were too good to pass up so I burned up my last vacation day yesterday and went for a solo ride.




Here you can see the snowy mountains looming in the background.



The trail goes through the water in this one.




I found the snow line! Brr! My grip heaters were on high.




About two hours the other direction & I’m now looping back. The snow line is where I was…


Another rocky spot.

I want to do the Four Peaks ride. I live on the west side and don't get over that way much though. Cool stuff.

Nice pics. Always cool to ride up to snow -- just watch for mud! Thanks.
