Yes, that is snow in the photo. At the beginning of the hike we were right about at 9,000. This is the upper end of the South Fork of the Little Colorado. If you were to hike all the way up South Fork Trail #97, after about 4 or 5 miles you would have to start negotiating a lot of deadfall, but eventually you would come out into this area. However, we reach it by driving up Big Lake road from Eagar. Then turn right on FR 409. You'll need a map, but you can figure out which one of the creeks to walk down if you have the map. The trail shown in the photos was made by cattle and elk, not so much for hikers. But it is ok to hike on it. We had fun, and of course, we didn't see anyone. It was VERY windy today, though, and quite chilly, but once we were down in the gorge, in the forest, it was not windy.

My camera is a cheapie, so that is why I have photo ratings disabled. The photos are just to give you an idea of the area. Thanks.
