Organ Pipe NM down by the border this morning.
I love the desert. I spent about 6 months in Southern California in 93, 2 weeks at a time. Every weekend that I was there, I went across the mountains and spent in Joshua Tree National Monument. After that job, I got sent to Tucson for a couple of months (again, 2 weeks at time) in Jan & Feb. It rained a couple of times while I was there and the transformation was nothing short of miraculous (sp?). I know a lot of people don't get it but it's a different kind of beauty than the traditional forest, lake, waterfall thing. It's rugged and gives one a sense of independence and self-reliance.
Just wait till ML sticks around, if he does, until the Spring bloom. Pictures were posted last year of it, it is indeed miraculous. Have a dry winter, and it is lackluster.
looks like an arid wasteland to me
From what the locals tell me, we're doing fair; a wet February is needed.
The Rents told me Phoenix was on par, as of yet.
Wetter is better!
Great pics! Theres something solemn about the desert. Calming. Looks cool.
When was that, three or four years ago when we had the "perfect storm"? That was the year we saw wildflowers at Death Valley they figured had not bloomed in 100 years.
Last year wasnt bad, round Phoenix area. Dont know bout the rest of the area.
Its hit and miss, at best. Would have liked to see Death Valley that year.
