"Ephemeral Streams" is named for temporary streams that form briefly after heavy rainfall in arid landscapes. I was fortunate enough to experience a desert rainfall (more like a day-long deluge) that transformed the washes into rivers, swept across the roads, and saturated the landscape, priming it for the spring bloom.
