WINTER CONDITIONS

Those driving and trekking into this Northern Arizona area must be aware it isn’t always a blazing hot desert. There are times that the night time temps drop below 20°F.

While the extremes are not ordinary. You must realize it can happen. You need to be prepared!

The elevation of the trailhead parking area and the drive in on IR#18. The Grand Canyon Caverns Campground and even Peach Spring & Seligman Arizona, are higher than the village of Supai, AZ.

February 2019 saw unusually cold and snowy conditions. Breaking weather records and closing not only 2 lane roads, but some of the Interstate Highways in the general area.

Those hardy souls that managed to get through and make the trip regardless of the weather. Were blessed with some unusual beauty many of us may never get to see in real life.
