For those who don't live in Arizona, I should explain a bit. We love our sunshine, but we also know that rain & snow are a gift. We don't get much of it.
Last weekend, after a few weeks of unseasonably warm weather, we heard about a big storm coming in. My husband was tied up, but the dog and I were uncommitted, so we hit the road, circling up through Prescott, photographing Watson Lake and running joyously thought the snow barking.
We were headed for Yarnell, and I judged that the gentler route through Skull Valley and Peeples Valley might be a bit easier driving and more photogenic. The moving storm gave me an outstanding brooding sky over snow-covered ranches.
There was more inspiration the next morning as the sky cleared; one last chance at the ephemeral March snow.
