Scenic Sunday - Storm over Grand Canyon

This is my first post to Scenic Sunday.

Yesterday afternoon we had a downpour on the North Rim. The most rainfall all summer. It only lasted about 30 minutes yet small streams ran all over and the ground actually got wet. I love the smell of the air before, during and after the rain.

PLEASE SEND SOME THIS WAY. WE DESPERATELY NEED RAIN!!

I really wish we get some soon. Eveything is so dry.

Sounds wonderful, we finally got some rain too. Petrichor, "the smell of rain," is a heavenly scent. :)

What a beautiful shot! The canyon always looks so gorgeous after a rain.

Beautiful photo. I think we appreciate the rain a lot more in the dry parts of the country because we see so little of it. I love the sound and scent of rain, too.

Maybe this is the rain we had last week? Welcome to SS, of course I missed this week typically!

I am glad to hear about the short rain. There's probably more on the way! I know what you mean regarding that fresh smell.

We had storm clouds here today also and I agree with you...I love the smell of the rain washed air! What a lovely sight those clouds are!

We got rain yesterday and the sage smelled so good. Thanks for the correction on the Oregon grape not blueberry, ooops!

Poor Joan needs rain and we have too much...There is no equity with Mother Nature....
