RAIN! Fort Davis' Chihuahuan Desert Nature Center Yesterday!

Yesterday, many of our communities got rain, LOTS of rain!  We were at Fort Davis' Chihuahuan Desert Nature Center for the afternoon storm, and it was impressive--almost obliterating our view of Mitre Peak.  Can you see it in the distance?  Earlier in the day, we participated in a post-burn bee study, and hiked one of their trails (great hiking there!), and watched the dozens of hummingbirds sipping from feeders outside the visitor center.

When the wildfire came through this community in April, we knew the greening would begin as soon as the rains started.  Much of the area is swathed in short (very) green carpet of growth.  This rain will add to that!

All of Fort Davis--and the entire region--is open for business and ready for your visit!  Come on out!
