You want ice?: Heliograph peak (10K ft. near Safford, AZ) <http://
Those dudes out east just dont get it. Those "mountains" out east are merely
small hills here in AZ, and most other western states as well.
Highest point in AZ (which was a consequence of the original topic) is
Humphreys Peak, 12,633 ft elevation, just a bit NW of Flagstaff. Cold, windy,
place in the winter.
What's out east that's 12,633 ft? Maybe two or three of your so called
This is a big state with many cities/towns over 6000 ft elevation and many
reasons for ice loading tower spec requirements.
When most folks think of AZ they think of the Phoenix area, which of course,
never gets snow/ice. We do get some serious monsoon winds in the summer
