Met up with fellow HAZ member SaguaroHiker to hike up Mt. Hopkins on a cloudy, windy day. The ambient temp at the summit read 46 degrees with a 30+ mph wind. On the way down he showed me a sweet overlook of Madera Canyon, where it promptly snowed on us briefly.

After reaching the car, we took a little jaunt out to a gorgeous waterfall in Kent Canyon. I'll be back for this beauty in the monsoon season!

Thanks Bill!
