… about the upper 1500’ of the SF Peaks were buried in a heavy layer of clouds Saturday morning and it added drama to this shot of the west facing slope of the SF Peaks. Snow Bowl is on the right edge of the slopes and it is carved into Agassiz Peak which is only a few hundred feet lower than Humphreys Peak which is upslope from where I took this photo. DMS GPS coordinates are: N18.104.22.168 W 22.214.171.124 and altitude 3208.20 meters.
You can see the lower portion of the runs at Snow Bowl and also the parking lot on the right side of the image near center line. I was up there this afternoon, but wasn’t much to shoot from the ground; the wind velocity made me happy to be on the ground and ditto that when I was over at Kendrick Peak. Easy to get to Kendrick; take SR 180 N from Flagstaff to mile marker 233 and at that point take a left on Forest Road 193 – take about 3+ miles to FR 171 for about another mile and then right on FR 190 which will take you up to the parking lot for the hiking trail. I got there too late to do the hike, but next windy day will find me there early in the morning. Good roads and most cars can make it and SUV’s no issue. Met some neat hikers there and looking forward to the return and the hike. About 2500’ vertical climb over about 4 miles and that said it was a good trail.
Winds are going down tonight so tomorrow I’ll be back up there in Mariah … only about 18 minutes to the peaks and then plenty of dwell time there before going back to Kendrick and maybe a swing over to Sitgreaves and Bill Williams mountains. Need to get low res images to Jogi as setting up and will be doing the social media for .
Just to get things going over there, a 24 hour special – buy any Kodak Luster print from any artist on the site and get a second print (doesn’t have to be the same image, but must be the same artist), same size at no charge and this includes free shipping. Send me an email as to which one (s) you want and I’ll send you a PayPal bill- can’t redo the shopping cart for this special. So which Photographer will you choose and which print(s) do you want – 2 for 1 – let me know- deal is over this time tomorrow!!
Have a terrific day … make a positive difference in someone’s life today … share your joy and smile.
I go out into the night and stretch forth my arms, as
if to embrace one I love …the solace of the stars is sweet, and the stillness has a voice I understand
