A Snowy Decent from Miller Peak

Descending from Miller Peak on the Arizona Trail.

We awoke at our chilly campsite high on Miller Peak for our second day on the Arizona Trail. After about a half mile of hiking we ran into snow covering the trail just north of the trail junction to Miller Peak. It was about 8 am, so the snow was still frozen pretty hard from the cold night. Fortunately many hikers had worn a path through the mile or so of snow. The hiking was slow but only slightly difficult, even without any snow gear.

After we passed the snowy section it was down down down as the Arizona Trail dropped about 3,000 feet into Sunnyside Canyon where we camped for the night.

On day two we hiked 10 miles to AZT mile 16.
