More Sonoran Desert

There is so much life here in the desert! Our rivers used to run year round. But then more people moved in and began depleting the ground water, which left the riverbeds dry most of the time.

 

After a good monsoon rain, water in the river is An Event!

Most of the plants and animals have adapted their habits and/or appearance to the dry heat here. Others stay hidden during the heat of a hot summer day. But there are always interesting things to see.

I like the starkness and the shape of this twisted tree.

And winter brings it’s own beauty.

As one of our local radio commentators says, “The Desert Is Beautiful. Yes, it is.”
