What a magical hike this turned out to be -- it's rare to see snow-capped peaks in the McDowell Mountains!

I thought about going out to the Supes to check out the winter wonderland, but opted to stay closer to home instead.

We started at the Lost Dog Wash TH, and went up to Sunrise Peak. When we got back to the hitching post, instead of going directly back to the TH, we took the Andrews-Kinsey Trail over to the Fountain Hills Preserve, where we took the Western Loop Trail up and over Peak 3098. There seemed to be 4-5 inches of snow up on 3098.

My feet got really wet on the way over to Sunrise Peak and Peak 3098. I'm glad we went early in the morning though: by mid-afternoon a lot of the snow had melted, especially on the south side of the mountains.

The views of the Mazzies were awesome -- they looked like a Colorado mountain range!
