On Saturday I had planned to photograph some of the snow on the Four Peaks. I knew all week that it was likely going to snow up there and I’ve been dying to shoot this once-a-year event.
The downside was that the weather had been so bad, the Beeline Highway was closed at Bush Highway and I couldn’t get as close as I wanted, plus the stormy clouds pretty much covered the top of the peaks.
However…it was a stunning day out, the clouds were puffy, stormy and gorgeous. The views were super-clear and the visibility was endless. We drove out along the Beeline and then came home the back roads via Bush Highway, and these below are the results.
Looking down the on-ramp to the Beeline.
A closed road that goes to Saguaro Lake.
Here is a shot of the Beeline to the left, but you can also see the snow on the hills way along the back horizon. That was about as much as I could get.
Another shot of the snow on the distant hills…although it’s kind of hard to see here with the clouds meeting the white.
The cliffs around the Saguaro Lake area.
Saguaro Lake on the left, the Bush Highway on the right…it was such a clear day.
