    Foto Friday: Epic Snow

    Well, it's actually Foto Sunday....

    When there is this much snow (courtesty of El Niņo), making ski tracks is more fun.

    dbflg, hasn't the hemispheric pattern has been more like a La Niņa pattern most of the winter? Atmospheric coupling with sub-tropical connection is possibly more related to MJO phase space and not El Nino? Talk dirty to me.

    Here's a few from the weekend. I had to put on my hiking shoes since I'm out of commission for the short term.

    Damn, you certainly do get around.

    Couldn't help but try to see as much as I could while the weather lasted too.

    Friday during my lunch break, took a 10 min drive north from work and this was the view of the McDowells near where the city shut down the road to the Tom's Thumb trailhead.

    Right after work, Thompson Peak:

    Later on Friday, just north of Brown's Ranch:

    Very rare cactus that blooms in the cold temperatures to reveal the beautiful 'Ciguaro' flower.

    Then for good measure, a visit to Gold Canyon on Sunday:

    not that impressive, but this is at 1600 feet of elevation.

    Ok, now I'm jealous.... I've never been up to flatiron in the snow. Only time I've ever even been to the area under snow/ice I had to turn around at the waterfall/siphon draw area. Just couldn't safely get up that slickrock covered in ice.

    Would be a damn fun time to do the full ridgeline again =)Foto Friday: Epic Snow-20170225_182114.jpg
