I decided to drive home via Lake Mary Road rather than I-17. What a treat. Snow transforms Arizona's higher elevations into something so special. I must have stopped 20 times along the way, and found myself at home still wearing gaiters since every little break involved post-holing into snow that was knee- or thigh-deep! :)

The snow level was pronounced. While there was snow above 5900 feet, it was probably less than a foot until about 7200 feet. From 7200 to 7600 made a world of difference. All the trees were still coated like icing, and the depth was easily 2-3 feet. The plow banks were car high, and the snow at this elevation and above will last for quite some time. I didn't realize the nuances of elevation along Lake Mary Road until observing the snow along this drive. A hundred feet makes a big difference! :o
