p.1 #1 · Saguaro National Park Snowfall


Hi All!

I had a great day shooting at SNP East 2/20/13- I'm sure many of you heard about our Arizona blizzard that affected most of the state. When I arrived at the park it had just begun to spit a few flakes but within minutes the ground was covered. The rangers closed the loop road but allowed traffic to use the picnic area about 1 mile in. It dumped for about an hour then within 2-3 hours it had pretty much melted off all the trees and cactus leaving patches on the desert floor. Talk about timing!
Here are my favorite six. Comments and suggestions gladly accepted.

What rare photos to have snow all over SNP. You did well with these, too.

#4 for me. Yeah, we rode our motorcycles down winter of 2010-2011 and ended up holed up in a hotel most of the time due to snow. Not really any snow like that though. Great timing!

EXACTLY!
Wish I had the time to make it down south. Would've been my Christmas card for sure.
Well done!

Hey Bob,

Those are some insane conditions, so great timing for you! My favorites of these are #1 and #4. These are really pretty special. Was there many others out shooting when you were there?

Interesting conditions. I think 3rd and 4th have the cleanest composition. The 3rd one is probably my favorite.

Jim- I had forgotten to limit the uploads to four- thanks for the reminder. As for others out there that day, I had two others with me and we only saw one or two others besides those shooting from within their cars. Temp was 31 and then it warmed up after the snowfall. It was blowing sideways for a while though.
