Just got back from a nice ride down to Morenci and back. The higher parts closer to Alpine and Hannigans Meadow are free of ice patches. There was some light snow as we went down on Friday, but the Saturday return trip was wonderful. The portion of the road between the Hagar Trailhead and Morenci have a few problems. They must have had a bit of rain a while back, as it seems the high sides of many of the corners were washed out. Expect dried mud and debris (gravel and sand) at the apex of many of these corners. Some cinders are present but not too bad. A great ride can still be expected, but do watch out. I think after a few rains (if they ever get some) it will be in fine condition for the spring. I just love that road!
