It was round trip. We went to Flagstaff, Arizona Snowbowl.
I hate the city snow plow, they always leave a huge pile at the end of the driveway in the middle of the night. Wake up in the morning and shovel again.
When I was younger I would head up to Flagstaff area in the morning, cut a Christmas tree and then drive back the same day. This was with my stock 68 FJ40. That made for a long day. Next time I would recommend driving up highway 87 and the head to Flagstaff at Clint's Well. Nicer drive and possible may find snow around the 300 road which is about 7,500'. Just be careful of elk. hopefully most are at lower elevations but you never know, this winter has been pretty mild. I did who on the news tonight Flagstaff has received more snow this winter than Fargo.
A number of years ago we had a great driver, they use a street grader and just before he passed the driveway he would straighten the blade so he didn't leave a pile in front the driveways. New driver not only doesn't straighten the blade our driveway is on the left side at the end of a long Cul-de-sac. He just drives up the right side and pushes all the snow around to the left side in front of our drive. One thing I do like about Northern Arizona is not near as cold further north. Shoveling snow with just a light jacket on is not uncommon.
