sunrise after the rain
Summer heat has settled in. Now it seems like the desert that it is. Being on the river early morning is sometimes a break from the desert. But when it heats up, there is no escape. Yesterday there were widely scattered afternoon storms. Some areas got between one and two inches of rain. At my sister’s house we got a couple of sprinkles. At Los Lunas, where we worked today, they must have gotten more. When I got dropped off, the sun was rising over fields covered in fog. All of the plants were dripping in water. Soon I was soaking wet – just another day in the bosque!
One of my favorite parts of each work day is that moment when I break out of the forest and step out onto a sandbar in the river.
