One of the many things I love about our Monsoon season here in Arizona is that the rain provides a much needed replenishment for the desert landscape and more. What was once discolored and dying is now vibrant and bursting with life, the air filled with absolute freshness, animals out enjoying the water puddles left over by the torrential rain. In addition, insects buzzing around doing what they do (annoy me), mosquitoes anyone? Despite the latter, the trip truly was a blissful one. If you’re ever in Arizona I recommend visiting this lovely place known as the Casa Grande Mountains.
