The rain has finally come back to the desert. I don't know if the drought if finally over but the ground is saturated from several very good rains.
Northern Arizona was cloudy today, I flew last weekend, I didn't have to fly today so I decided to turn off the cell phone and go deep into a desert canyon. Life finds a way through and wastes no time when water comes. Everywhere there were hundreds of tiny fishhook cactus in full glorious bloom. These guys are about 1&3/4" in diameter.
Every time I go into the outdoors, the wilderness, the desert, my spirit is renewed. I revel in this wild world where perpective is restored. Everything makes sense out there, mysterious as it may be.

If you look close you can see why they call it a fishook cactus.
Water has come back to carve the granite canyons once more. Water is life out here and it has been absent for a long time. The week have been selected out and the strong will thrive.
