The desert is full of color

....if you know where to look.

We have had, without fail since I moved here, spectacular sunsets, every evening. Tonight was no exception, and with the distant storm clouds, the colors were even more vibrant and varied.
Unfortunately, pictures simply do not do it justice.

Fire in the sky, sunset on the Mojave.

That's beautiful. I really enjoyed driving through Nevada and Arizona on a vacation before-- it's really another world out there.

Isn't that the truth! Your picture is gorgeous but like you said, pictures never do it justice. I've been so amazed at some of these sights and tried to capture them over and over again, but none ever come close to the beauty I'm witnessing right before my eyes.

I'm excited for monsoon season! Love the electrical lightning "storms". Or whatever they are called!

Thanks all!

Jenna, keep the monsoons

I live in a trailer (not a mobile home, but the travel kind), and I don't like the winds that come with.
Every gust sounds and feels like someone has driven into the side of my home
Last year I lost my awning to the monsoon winds, I'm lucky it didn't tear my wall out.
I do enjoy all the rain and the pretty light shows though.

Some of the best electrical storms to be seen though are scross the badlands of South Dakota in the summer.
Nothing like driving out there at night, with Pink Floyd's Delicate Sound of Thunder CD playing in the background and watching the distant lightning fork across the sky.
