Snow Storm in Arizona and Jeep Trip to Crown King

I drove across mountain passes on a 70 mile backroad trip from I-17 to Prescott via Crown King this weekend. The trip was absolutely awesome, although you rarely could see more than a few hundred feet due to snow and visibility issues.

Four jeeps and a Toyota Truck went out with us and we didn't do a lot of slipping and sliding, well, at least not as much as we thought we would. The scena[e-jacoby]ry was awesome and I took both boys who had a good time.

Bad news is that the same storm that dropped over a foot across the pass was mostly wind at Arizona Snowbowl and blew most of the snow off the San Francisco Peaks. I mocked the Hopi Gods last week and I take some accountability in that my lack of faith may have caused their anger and shortened the ski season for Flagstaff.

We also watched the wind, with a tear in our eyes. Hold faith, the base is still good and there is still a chance of another fall.( )
