Rain in the Desert
The days have been cooler, and windy, which is usually the case when there are storms in the northern states. I would still rather have 60’s and a brisk wind, then be up to my knees in snow however.
This was our sunset two nights ago, clouds began moving in and that always makes for great skies.
Then yesterday afternoon, the rain began.
I absolutely love it when it rains in the desert. It doesn’t happen very often, and it makes the dry desert world so different. Plus the scent in the air is unbelievable. Nothing in this world compares to that wonderful scent. I wish I could send it to you guys over the internet.
In between showers yesterday, I grabbed my camera to see what I could see. We are parked next to a small, yet deep wash that is solid rock in spots. The water had pooled in these rocks, making nice little reflective puddles. Then it started sprinkling again, and I captured some some airborne drops.
I’m easily amused and could take photos like this all day.
I’m pretty sure the cactus are glad for the rain.
It rained almost all night, and it’s a misty, moisty morning today. Pretty socked in out there, but oh…..the smell. Divine!
I’m looking forward to getting out there with my camera again today. It’s a changed world, and it won’t last very long.
