Looking back at summer in November

Kind of got behind….

Catalina _summer_rainfall through 2014
Data, except for the past summer, are from Our Garden down there near Stallion and Columbus. That last data point is from Sutherland Heights.

Fall in the Sonoran Desert (the season)


These shots below from hikes/horsey rides on Friday and yesterday,  FYI.  Seemed a little greener than usual for this time of year probably due to those September and early October rains.   I think you should hike or ride a horse/bike out there in the Catalina Mountains before the rains hit.  Yeah, that’s right;  its gonna rain in November1.
