I was hoping to get up early and hike into some snow in Sedona's Red Rock Country. This storm didn't quite produce as predicted however, and despite being cold enough, there just wasn't enough moisture to produce much snow in most areas. It looked like Mingus and the areas above Sycamore Canyon had gotten a few inches, but the red rocks around Sedona were mostly bare.

So despite striking out on a fresh morning snowfall, it was still an amazingly beautiful day for hiking. I set off around 7:30 with temps in the high 30s. Some clouds moved in and it started snowing again on my ascent. The shower passed before I reached the summit, but looked to be hitting downtown Sedona. The clouds were nice. A new squall was moving in from the northwest so I decide to head back down. It was blustry as the snow fell, but before reaching the bottom the snow let up again and the sun came out, and I was able to remove layers as the temps moved up into the 40s.

Sedona hikes are so scenic with low clouds and dramatic weather. I'd never hiked Bear Mtn before, and a cold snowy day provided just the views and solitude I enjoy on otherwise overrun tourist trails!
