You could be living here in central Arizona,
where there's NO snow.
True, I'll be missing views of lingering snow this summer and fall. For the sake of my dogs staying cool, I'll have to do hikes with lots of lakes. Maybe it will snow more next year so I feel like going to the desert for spring break instead of grabbing the last gasps of snow. I need to get down into that big canyon in Arizona someday too.
Arrow Peak back right?
Yep! Gonna be hittin' that up soon. :) The views off Cardinal are just stellar.
Indeed! Taboose is more scenic than I realized and the views from Cardinal were some of the best I've experienced. If I had more time over there soon or were much of a backpacker, I'd do Arrow. Williamson via George Creek was calling to me once I adjusted some to the altitude and long hikes after months away, but I don't regret choosing this easier option at all.
