In the desert, on days such as yesterday, the dynamics of the landscape are explained by the movement of water. The gathering of rain into dribbles, then rivulets, then brooks and then finally, at least here, into creeks where the drama of a fall emphasizes the stories of water.
The short video below is just a taste of what the normally quiet and dry Red Rock Canyon NCA can become with a steady supply of rain. It takes place around Upper Lost Creek Falls on a bench of sandstone above the more popular Lower Lost Creek Falls. Here, on a Saturday, this place would normally be crawling with conditional wanderers. Today, however, I was alone. Oh how I love the rain!
