Went to bed with rain on the roof of the Stinger "B" and woke up to sunshine and beautiful blue skies.
|Opened the front curtains to the sun just peeking over the mountain's in the|
East.( I took this through the windshield so there are few spots of dirt.)
|Everything looked so bright outside I took|
a quick walk around the place.
|I know it is probably just me but even the trees, bushes and saguaros look shinier.|
There is something about a rain that just does that.
Short back track to yesterday.
|Leaving for a ride into Quartzsite it had started to rain and the clouds|
looked heavy over the mountains in the west.
|Not sure if it was a rain line or dust but the mountains to the Northeast|
|On our way out of Quartzsite last night the sun was a bright shiny|
orb of light sitting on the mountains.
|Then we spotted this rainbow shooting through the clouds|
that had settled on the mountain.
|Then back at the Stinger "B' we could see a complete rainbow.|
|We could see the mountains southeast of us in the last of the sun's light.|
|There was just something about last nights sky as the sunlight left us.|
|The last of our light slipping behind the mountains.|
The light splashes on the desert floor in the black are puddles of water.
I had hoped to have this written and published earlier this morning. Then I had a wonderfully unexpected call from a friend. It is a friendship that has stood the test of time and distance. We have known each other since my parents and I moved across the alley from her and her parents when we were both three years old. It was a wonderful way to start the day!
Hope everyone has a wonderful day.
If you decide to leave a comment we would enjoy hearing from you.
