Go Back

Desert Waterfall Although the deserts of Earth can look like Mars, reminders that the home planet is a unique oasis are everywhere. Here, a cloudburst passed over the desert at Dead Horse Point, Utah, then was gone within minutes. A surge of mud-red water pushed its way over the cliff side. Half an hour later the stream was dry again, but the entire countryside smelled like flowers for days afterwards.
