When you talk to people that has never been to Arizona, often times they think its a desert full of sand and winds. Many people never know that the Sonoran Desert youngest and wettest desert in the world. Thats right, Arizona is the wettest desert in the world with its 6.2 inches of annual rain fall. Many of the flowers and plant life in this beautiful state is in fact very drought tolerant.
We often will get multiple big storms that come through and divide the annual rainfall up. That is why Arizona is know for its flash floods, because the amount of rain is dispersed in 1.5 to 2 inches of rain per storm.
For over 2,000 years the Hohokam people occupies the Phoenix Arizona area. They created over 135 miles of irrigation canals. This made most of the area workable. Those paths later would be used for the modern day Hayden-Rhodes aqueduct, Central Arizona, & Arizona canal. It is rumored that sometime between 1300 & 1450, periods of drought and severe floods is what led to the Hohokam civilization’s abandonment of this area of Arizona.
Once mother nature drops the water on the land, it literally breathes life into the dormant. The plants will all bloom! Not only does the area green up, but then the life of the wild poppy plants start to bloom displaying their vibrant yellows, blues, and purples. When people go out on our hot air balloon rides in AZ they have the opportunity to photograph the life cycles of these beautiful plants. The plants are growing and the small ponds and mother nature made reservoirs retain the water until the next storm.
