:D Nice pictures! Thanks for sharing. It's been 10-years since I've been to Tucson, but seeing those mountains and desert make me want to visit the area again.

Nice. It's snowing in Boulder, an equally rare event this season.

We had flurries coming in with the rain in Florence but none of the snow survived on the ground.  The Superstitions we all topped in white today.  they looked really a lot like big mtns today.

On another note the S&R people were out today looking for a lady - a lost hiker- around the area of Weaver's Needle this morning.  this is the same lady have sort of got lost in the same area in December.  I was hiking into the same area in which she was lost back then and met her just as she was coming onto a main trail after spending the night off trail.  Today's news story reported she was a armature gold hunter looking for the Lost Dutchman's mine.  From my conversation with her when I met her in December she is, well, interesting.  Very little gear to spend a night out, just sort of gustsy.  she used a  5 or 7 iron as a walking cane- something to hit snakes with she told me.  Or bad people.

Flowers should be great this spring.  Can't wait.  I hope to start a 5- 7 day trip in the eastern end of the Superstitions starting Friday if the weather clears some.  I'll be going in and coming out from Miles TH.  

I'll post the trip agenda over in the south west section.

Cool - it didn't snow at all there in the 5 years I lived there.  Enjoy it while it lasts, I'm sure it won't hang around long :D

Growing up in the Tucson area from 1959~67 it snowed twice in my memory. Living in the Tucson mountain foothills we had a good view of Catalinas when the snow would drop to the 4000~4500" level in the winter for a day or so. Always enjoyed the straight-edge snow line along the range.
