An evening shower in Tucson. I once told a Japanese friend that one can "smell" rain in the desert, but he scoffed at the idea. In that moment, I realized how hard it is to convey experiences unique to a place and time to those who do not have a similar background. In the dry climate of the desert, we do become quite sensitive to the "scent" of humidity the precedes a rain fall.

For Tucson, this is a "monsoon" rain.
