Evening Clouds after the Rain in Phoenix AZ

Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart Elite Group Tempe AZ Tel: 480-966-9353 SA585680000

One of the rare experiences in the Phoenix Valley of the Sun is walking in the desert after a rain - all the plant and tree fragrances, the bird songs, the exquisite sitings, the feeling of freshness and rejuvenation. To me it feels like the desert equivalent of a forest walk.

Yesterday was a long rainy day and when the rain stopped in the evening, it brought us those views and the smell of the creosyte bush in the air.

Hello Steffy- - - there's something quite special about the air after some rain.  Definitely fresh.

Hi Steffy Hristova I love the photo of the desert after the rain.... it's the Arizona version of walking through the woods.... I'd bet yours is better.... ours is leaves, sticks and rocks....

Hi Barbara Todaro , it's walking on a rocky trail usually, and I like it. Thanks for stopping by.

Lovely pictures, and the first one truly is exquisite. While I haven't hiked in the desert after a rain, the sage brush in the high desert around Elko Nevada smells fabulous after a rain.

Hi Lottie Kendall , thanks for stopping by. The creosite bush here is the one that emit that specific fragrance, maybe the sage brush, too.

I can imagine the color of the red rocks in that area are so much richer after the rains.  Beautiful scenes, Steffy.

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat , you are right - the red rocks are brigher and more stunning.

Hi, Michael Jacobs , yes, especially in the desert, it's a very welcome sensation. We have had a good amount of rain and the hills now look very green, and yellow with bloom, too.
