Contrary to popular belief, Arizona is not just a dry, desolate desert. Rain and snow have been abundant this winter in the desert southwest. Recently, half the state was covered in snow.
Prior to that, a warmer storm passed through melting the lower elevation snowpack causing flash flooding throughout the state. It’s been a wet muddy mess no matter where you were heading out to explore. Compared to the droughts we’ve had years prior, we’ll take every drop! It’s nice to see our lakes and reservoirs filled up.
Keeping our feet warm and dry may seem like an oxymoron of sorts given we live in the desert, but truth be told our Bridger Mid Waterproofs have received non-stop action this winter for both my son and me.
From the snowy mountains of Northern Arizona to chasing waterfalls and climbing boulders in the Superstition Wilderness east of Phoenix.
As the temperatures began to rise and the soil dried, having a breathable option to wear on the trail was a welcomed treat this season. The Bridger Vent Mid did not disappoint. It had the classic Bridger's comfort and kept our feet as dry as the creeks and washes.
Bonus: anytime you can slip on a boot and it feels like your foot is wrapped up in a pillow is just plain nonsense, and that’s the best way I can explain wearing either boot.
The tough decision to make now is which pair I’ll wear in a few weeks as we drop into the Grand Canyon on an eight-day adventure!
