    Awesome storm, lit the barbecue up and enjoyed the rainbow! Lots of thunder as well. Knocked down that pesky Mulberry pollen too.

    A collection of the photographs of the water pools and water falls in the Green Valley area are worthy of being shown in an artist’s show. Just breath-takingly beautiful.
