Many of the roads branching off 62 are unpaved, and rare desert storms wash sand over the highway. It's not unusual to see plows scraping the sand off the road after a storm, identical to the process of snow plows in cold country. Here's our desert version of a "snow drift."
Just strikes me as ironic... after one of the coldest winters on record, with record snowfalls, the deserts deal with drifts of their own!
We're also starting to see some blooms following the rains of a few weeks ago. Not a lot, just some here and there, and mostly prickly pear.
Hope your week is going well. Thanks for stopping by!
