    Desert Snow

    We know Flag and Sedona and such got snow - no surprise. But who got snow in the desert?

    Down in Rio Verde we got this. First time I've seen that in my 10 years in AZ. I so badly want to go ride in it, but it is raining right now.

    All Maricopa County parks are closed on Friday to both bikers and horses. They will reassess later today for Saturday.

    Could go do a few intervals up Humboldt... The descent might be a bit dicey though...

    No way...
    Although there are sections of it that are quite rocky and drain well, there are some REALLY sticky ones.

    The better question is how much of BCT will still be snow packed on Saturday.

    The river is high if you are trying to cross south BCT from rock springs trailhead. It has been up all month.
