It Snowed in Phoenix Yesterday

According to one website the last time there was officially measurable snow in Phoenix was in 1937.  gold canyon snowBut as you can see from these picture I took in our backyard big flakes were coming down. It even looked like it was hailing for a time.

This morning we hiked the Hieroglyphic Trail and the snow was still there. cactus and snowIt was weird to be hiking and find little patches of snow in amongst the cacti. snowy superstition mtnsWe’re hoping it won’t snow again during our Phoenix stay because we are here for the warm sunny weather. It did however make for a unique experience to see the now familiar scenery decorated with snow.
