Tucson Mt. Lemmon Snow and Hiking Report - Jan 5 2013

Headed up from Tucson to the Catalina Highway and Mt. Lemmon today to try to find some snow.  It wasn't too hard!  I can't remember seeing snow so low in elevation on Mt. Lemmon before this long after a storm came through.  We went past Windy Point up to the Upper Green Mountain trail head with Max.  The crowds were pretty thick with lots of families up there having a good time in the snow.  Lots of people sledding all over the place as there was enough snow at any pullout above 7000ft or so.  We hiked around for a few and some areas were over a foot thick in new powder.  We should have headed up a bit further and did some skiing as the lift is definitely open.  Here are some pics for you:
