Desert Snow

Apache Junction, Arizona

January 1, 2015

We woke up in the New Year to a beautiful desert snow storm.  The Superstition Mountains were frosted with the white magic.  The cholla cactus were also dusted with snow.  This is a view of the famous Flatiron peak in the Superstition Mountains.  A sight we will be enjoying from our new home in Apache Junction.


First light revealed this magical desert landscape from the lost goldmine trail.

Finally a view of the magnificent Four Peaks in a snow storm.  This is a rare desert snow storm.  The snow coverage is all about elevation.  The lower desert in the foreground had not received any snow. Saving the best for last!
