Hi Chisos_Muse!
Thanks for posting those pictures!  What a nice New Year's Eve treat!  The one of Casa Grande with the snow on it is awesome.  How is the driving into the Basin when it is like that?

And, Happy New Year to y'all!

They had the snow plows out on the road most of the day.  It wasn't too bad.  The ground temp was above freezing.  

Great pics, Jon!!

Happy New Year!

Hi BBH!
Happy New Year to you too......they put sand on the road, and if it's too icy or treacherous, they'll close it.

Yeah I was there!  It was awesome!  I have around 150 pictures that I took over the 7 days I was in the park.

The picture with the sun shining on Casa Grande is spectacular! It will be the wallpaper on my computer at work on Tuesday.
