After several days of heavy snow in the higher elevations we got a break in the weather. I was specifically interested in photographing snow in Wupatki National Monument. The park had reported a few inches of snow so I had hopes that some of it was still around.
I arrived at Wukoki Pueblo a few minutes before sunrise. There had been snow all the way down—even at the Visitors Center—but dropping that last bit of elevation to the pueblo was enough to have erased the snow cover to just a few patches. It wasn’t quite what I was hoping to see but was still interesting.
Here are a few images taken just after sunrise.
I returned home via Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument and captured this image of the cinder cone covered in new snow.
And now we have another snow storm approaching the area and January will end up with above normal snowfall amounts.
