River Road Rainfall – Big Bend Ranch State Park, Texas

Here’s another shot of the same storm a few hours earlier and fifty miles farther west. We tracked this illusive rain across Big Bend Ranch State Park from Ft. Leaton to Lajitas and finally into Big Bend National Park before we found any rain actually hitting the ground.

It’s pretty amazing to be standing directly under falling rain and to be perfectly dry since none of the rain is hitting the ground. What a great place to track a rain storm through the desert!
