It is raining in the picture, and it is of a sign near the bottom of Kaibab, describing the rainfall as being very low and hence it was desert conditions with plants similar to the Chuiuauan (sp) Desert (iirc) - but it is raining!!!

It does occasionally rain in the desert (usually right about when I'm trying to get to or from work...)

The other morning on the bus another rider, a librarian for the State Archives, was telling me a story from a friend of his. She was talking to a grade-school class, and asked if any of them lived in a desert. Not a one raised their hand. Here's the punch line--I live (and this happened) in Phoenix.

I know it doesn't *look* like a desert...but isn't the lack of rain a clue? :-)
