This is a perfect trail for an easy adventure, yet very rewarding view. The incinerator road is closed until may, so it adds .5 mile or so from the gate. I've done this in the summer and the contrast is worth noting.
Once to the trail head it is a easy 1.3 miles to Leopold lookout. There was up to 6 inches of snow in the shady spots and the wind was really whipping over the ridge. So it certainly was adding to the fun/difficulty of the situation.
We arrived 1 hr before sunset and set up fire and camp. The views are simply STUNNING. The Rincons, Mt Wrightson, the Galiuros, Mt Graham to name a few ranges loom in the distance. No clouds made the sunset a dud, but guitar and a Pliny the Elder double IPA were a nice touch. After the sun went down WOW did that cold come rolling in. I bet the wind chill got down to 20 degrees! A few funny moments and then off to bed for a 630 appointment with the sunrise.

I will admit on the way out i had a good fall, and got a nasty scrape. I am quite proud of it :D

To end the day we hit up Nimbus Brewery , a very enjoyable place.
