First Snow Fall

We got our first snow of the season earlier this week. Although it never snowed in the city, once the clouds cleared, it was clear that the Peaks had received a healthy layer of snow. In this picture, you can see clearly the elevation below which it was too warm for snow to form.

Of course, as soon as we got our first snow fall, the buzz around town was when our local ski area, the Arizona SnowBowl, would open for the year. As I write this, we are getting our second helping of snow, this time even in town, so there is a good chance it wont be long before skiers and snowboarder are cutting trails in the new powder.

Great shot of the peaks! I always loved visiting Flagstaff when it snowed.
