Weekly Photo Challenge: Green 3

Proof that everything in the desert is not brown or gray, the prickly pear cactus. The sections, called nopales or tunas are eaten and the fruits which are purple, make a beautiful jelly or can be eaten, once you remove the prickles. 


Weekly Photo Challenge: Extra Ordinary

Rain in the desert is not like rain everywhere else. It can be abrupt, violent and over quickly. And very isolated to one place. That does make it easy to find the rainbow…if you know where the roads are and have 4-wheel drive to get through the mud that ensues. 

This one gave us nearly the whole arch of a double rainbow. Very faintly, and it was easier to see in person.
