Happy New Year

New Years day broke clear and bright. It snowed a couple days ago.  I took the opportunity to fly out and get some pictures of the snow swept peaks. This is four-peaks on the East side of the Phoenix Metro area.  If anyone wonder's why we put up with months of triple digit heat, I hope these pics explain the answer.  The short version is "Yeah it may be hot, but I don't have to shovel it off my driveway!"
Mount Ord, NorthEast of Phoenix.  There are a couple repeaters on the left two towers.  The right most tower is a fire spotter.  Probably only a couple inches of snow but I'd hate to have to report to the tower even now a couple days after the snowfall.

Happy new year. May it be a darn sight better than the last!
