Our one day long winter arrived today a little before noon and it was beautiful for about 3 hours before it melted away. No shovel necessary. The top picture is the road running through Gates Pass. If you walk through the "saddle" at the top of the picture you can end up at my house in the valley.
Scenes like this one are definitely not the norm here in the Sonoran Desert but it is certainly welcome because it almost guarantees a really good spring wildflower season this year.
