The Arizona desert is a harsh environment, almost everything you can touch is sharp and can catch you off guard. There are extremes in temperatures too. You can travel from a 80 degree desert to a 35 degree mountain in 2 hours. And when a storm hits, it hits hard. Water is a precious resource in this environment and always welcome. This photo was taken about an hour after a beautiful rain in the desert. There is so much abundance in the Sonoran desert as the flora and fauna absorb their nutrient water.
