Cycling & Snow!
After Saturday's hike, I took Sunday off. I've got an Ohio cycling friend coming out in early March and then will spend a couple of weeks in Ohio in late April. I would really like to at least ride with the "B" group if not the "A" group while in Ohio so plan to work in more rides to get ready. I rode 30 miles on Monday then 40 on Tuesday. Average speed is rather slow at 17 so a lot of work yet to be done. lol.
On Wednesday, Amy and I decided to take Jack, her Wheaten Terrier, up Mount Lemmon to see his first snow. I was surprised how far we had to drive to reach significant snow, all the way up to mile marker 21.
Two friends of Amy's, Frank & Lisa from PA, had arrived for a visit so they came too. We were all curious how Jack would respond to the snow so after taking care of "business", he....
....ran around and enjoyed the experience.
Finally exhausted, we gathered him and headed back to the SUV.
I think we were at 8000+' while higher up, there was 2' of snow on the ground, especially at Ski Valley but the snow line is advancing rapidly up as we enjoy several days, in the valley, at temps in the low to mid 70's. Well, big hike coming tomorrow.
