Journey of a body on this earth

After the Rain


California has been getting so much rain from El Nino with breaks long enough to let the ground soak everything up.  I haven’t seen it this lush in maybe 4 years.  Not to mention we are getting tons of snow in the mountains which is perfect for filling our reservoirs throughout the year.

This one was taken just after a light rain.  Ahhh…everything is so fresh!
