A great hike in the snowy Pinalenos with Nick. After we freed my truck from the sand that I'd gotten it stuck in on the way to the Dutch Henry Trailhead :oops: , we made our way up the Swift Trail to begin our hike at Ladybug Saddle. Just past Arcadia campground, the road became a sheet of solid ice :o Definately not something you want to encounter on the Swift Trail! Plans changed, and we decided on the Ladybug Trail. We started hiking up the trail from Angle Orchard, unsure if we would have enough time to complete the hike. My post-sickness fatigue didn't slow us down too much, though. The second half of the hike was almost entirely in the snow :) , which varied in depth from 2 to 5 inches. The wind picked up as we reached Ladybug Peak, but it really didn't seem very cold up there. We made it down from the peak in 2.5 hours. Hiking in rugged, snow covered mountains was an awesome experience. Had a great time :D
