9 Spots In Arizona That Will Drop Your Frozen Jaw
Finally! More snow has arrived in parts of Arizona this weekend. If you’re trying to decide where in Arizona you should check out the snow this winter that will bring a smile to your face or drop your jaw, here are some places that you definitely need to check out:
1. Sedona is usually a pretty awesome place to see snow, especially how it contrasts with the red rocks.
This amazing shot was taken at West Fork in Sedona where parts of the seasonal waterfall were frozen in place.
Here's a chillier view of the same area. That looks both amazing and cold!
2. Of course, Flagstaff is almost always a guarantee for amazing snowy shots.
Like at Sunset Crater.
Or here at the San Francisco Peaks. How much snow do you think the Peaks will get this year?
3. Driving to and seeing the Grand Canyon this time of year is simply magical after snowfall.
You can see sights like this...
...and perhaps even this if you're lucky.
4. Prescott is another place to see snow each year.
You can barely see the town!
Here is a frozen Watson Lake in Prescott.
Here's another view of the lake. A little less frozen but still cold.
5. Another jaw dropping snow spot? Monument Valley.
The area is even more stunning when snow covers the park.
6. The Mogollon Rim is a must-see every winter!
Payson, Pine, Strawberry, Pinetop, and so many other towns are great places to stay to enjoy the snow.
7. And further south? The Phoenix area doesn't usually see snow (maybe a bit of frost) but the mountain ranges around it often do.
This one was taken in north Scottsdale. What a sight!
The Four Peaks, of course.
And the Superstition Mountains look pretty covered in snow.
8. Other places include the mountains around Tucson. The Santa Catalinas, Santa Rita, and Rincon Mountains all occasionally see snow in the winter and it's always a rare treat.
9. Also, be prepared to see more snow in your Facebook timeline!
If you're one of those folks who moved to Arizona to avoid snow (I know several), looking at it on your screen is always an option as well.
Did you get a chance to see the snow this weekend? If not, where is your favorite place to see the snow in winter?
