Hiking Wet Desert Arizona

All it Does is Rain in Phoenix!

I’ll admit that isn’t true, but the last few weeks it sure seems that way.  It’s pouring again as I type this, but I did manage to get out before sunrise and spend a couple hours in the Desert at Apache Wash.

It has been a dry year for the most part and the desert is really starting to green up.  I found the cholla especially interesting as they were still holding on the the night’s rain.

And I don’t remember the last time the Barrel Cactus were so red.

But it is still not a desert hike without a saguaro!

And this is as close as I was able to get to the “Jackalope” this time.  He must have shed his antlers recently, because I couldn’t make them out.
