With much of Az being obliterated by snow we knew we had to go play in some!

Driving up the 17 we started to see snow around Anthem and once we passed through Black Canyon City and up near Sunset Point it had really started to accumulate, looked like about 4 inches. We knew we were in for a good day!

Parked in the big lot right off the highway, didn’t want to attempt to drive to the trailhead in mud and snow. Seeing someone else stuck helped influence our decision. It added a bit of distance which was fine. Seeing this area under a few inches of snow was quite the treat! Water was flowing everywhere possible and it all fed into Badger Springs wash which had heavy flow! Seeing The Agua Fria roaring From all the snow melt was epic! Witnessing snow here was too cool. Who knows the next time we will see that much snow in these canyon walls.

Doesn’t get much better than running around in the snow in the desert!
