Weather Patterns

Ice and muddy water fill depressions in the Rock Knob Trail made by bike tires after heavy rains in McDowell Sonoran Preserve in Scottsdale, Arizona in December 2019

A week’s worth of weather in one picture. Rain turned the soft parts of the trail to mud that deformed under bike tires. More rain filled the depressions with water. Yesterday dawned cold and the water turned to ice, which either took on the color of the muddy water below or reflected the blue skies above.
