M is for Monsoon

When people think of the desert they think of a place that is hot and dry. It's true, the Sonoran Desert is hot, but it is what we like to call a "dry heat."

During the summer months the daily temperatures reach over 100 degrees. But there is some respite. Summer in the Sonoran Desert is the season of the Monsoon. A season of high winds, high heat and thunderstorms.

The heat of the day starts early in the morning and builds until you feel like you just can't take the heat for much longer. But then in the afternoon, the clouds gather and start to build over the mountains. The storm is coming.
