Four Peaks and Snow

The winter months in this part of Arizona will give you sunny days in the 60’s. With chilly mornings and the occasional freeze warning. This is a view of downtown Phoenix from Tempe Town Lake.

But, as you look northeast, you might just catch a glimpse of the ‘other Arizona’, one that is 5000 feet in elevation and covered in snow. This is Four Peaks, the closest mountain range to the Phoenix metro area that gets any significant amount of snow.
