TucsonMTB.com had their annual 8 Days of Christmas this year. BV was leading out one of the rides with a shuttle of Bug Springs to Milagrosa. When plans of bikepacking got derailed, Scott asked me to join the group ride. Dave, Scott, and I met up at the base of the Catalina Highway at 9 and started to ride up. We got a small snow flurry after passing 7 Cataracts. The group numbered about 20 in size, surprisingly efficient the entire ride given its size.
I have never seen this much snow on Bug Springs
As usual, Scott was the "technical wizzard."
We stopped at the Hoodoos and Molino for a quick break, otherwise the entire group seemed to chug along.

Incredible ride. Add in a quick snow flurry on the ride up and a good 2 inches of snow on Bug Springs, and you have a classic December ride. Thanks to Brian and TucsonMTB.com
