Walking across the slopes and into the woods we were soon greeted with snow. The higher we went, the more the snow became part of the trail. By around 10,400 feet the trail was essentially compressed snow for the rest of the trip up. I was able to break in my microspikes; which performed marvelously.

Even with the knowledge of the false summits it is remarkable how much that weighs on you when you reach one. We kept trucking, however, and eventually made the summit. Upon plopping down behind a windbreak, to make some lunch, I was shocked at how warm the ground was. It literally felt as warm as the desert floor. If felt so incredibly good on sore muscles.

Overall the journey was fun and a success. It was my second time to the top of Arizona and one that won't soon be forgotten.
