A dry wash at dawn, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona

no mud for the snail—
a wash once filled with water
running dry with sand

  1. so is rain needed in your area! poor snail. even though the wash is dry, it still is lovely.

  2. When it rains won’t that be a very full stream bed?

  3. A beautiful spot, but I’m always on the lookout for rattlesnakes.

      Late summer. We call it the monsoon season.

  5. Im trying to remember the name of that tree — I’ll look it up, but didn’t want to go away and then forget to comment! Lovely desert dawn.

      The huge tree to the left? It’s an ancient palo verde.
