Salt Arroyo

(Flash floods occur in the desert - I have heard that more are drowned than die from heat! Salt is often to be discovered in desert areas
 - the floor of death valley is sheeted with salt and Salt Lake City lies on the edge of a huge lake of salt. An arroyo is a natural water course.
These small desert trees and sage brush is everywhere in this part of the desert.)
