The Painted Desert in rain

On Tuesday Oct. 16, 2018 Beth Marie called and said we should go exploring some remote places. It was snowing in the high country and raining in the low, but it must be a day for an adventure. So we headed off.

 We made our way off the paved road and off the dirt road to a barely visible two track

We finally drove as far as we dared on the sand dunes and found our spot. With umbrellas and cameras we began walking in the mud and puddles of water towards the edge and misty vista. It was nice of Beth to have a bright umbrella.

All this water in the Painted Desert!

Water ColorThe second day of steady rain has created this amazing "water color" in the Painted Desert.

Chocolate waterfalls everywhere.

Beth ;-)

As we started to head back to the car, Beth said wow -look at that waterfall! We could not hike or drive around to it before dark so I got a few images using my tripod. The fall itself is about 100 feet high.

This is a closer view of it.
