Mojave Snowbird Trip – Wet Desert

The forecast couldn’t make its mind up over the last few days, would there be rain, when, maybe…

It did start to rain at sunset on the 14th and rained lightly on and off all night, I awoke to a very different desert

Foggy Sonoran Desert

The rain got harder as the morning went on, judging by the amount in the cup holders of the cooler we got about 3/4″ (great rain gauge!)

View from the caravan door after the fog cleared.
My ditch scheme worked quite well.
Perhaps I should have extended the ditches a little further.

The rain slowed down later in the afternoon so it was time to go for a walk.

Quite a lot of water about and some nice little streams flowing, Biff seemed bemused by it all and sat down several times requiring a biscuit to move again.
You could almost hear the desert plants sucking up the moisture.
Some nice flowers about

The rain stopped while we were walking and by sunset the desert had returned to sunshine, we are promised sun and a high of 68F tomorrow.
