After More Rain

Ocotillos on a hill
A little after 1 a.m. this morning the sky let loose with a tremendous downpour of rain.  The results of the storm were evident in the desert this morning as Dr. K, Willow, Frio and I did our regular hike.  Not only was the sand in numerous arroyos scarred by flooding, but the desert was even more green than yesterday.

Because of the heavy cloud cover and a very light breeze we all remained cool and collected during our outing.

After the trek we drove over to the PanAm Plaza to mail a few bills.
