We had RAIN yesterday!!!

We actually had RAIN here in the desert and especially in our local mountains yesterday afternoon.  I was down in Indio, babysitting the granddaughter, and this is what I saw on my way home.  Ahhhh.....I LOVE the smell of rain in the desert!  Our mountains apparently were getting a real drenching.  I think I'll drive up there this morning and have a look!

Mountains and fence~Good Fences~041814

Those are the mountains of Idyllwild in the background and the fence is in the valley of Garner Valley, which is halfway between Palm Desert and Idyllwild.  I often drive up there and admire the ranch fences and the fences out in the meadows, like this one.  Last year, that area was covered with wildflowers.  This year, however, because of the drought, there are none or very few.  Sometimes I'll catch a photo of a meadowlark somewhere on this fence, but not on this day.  Good Fences for Friday, April 18, 2014.  To visit Good Fences, please go to:
