The Black Rock Desert gets an average of 7” of rainfall annually. But sometimes in the spring the monsoon rains bring a deluge, saturating the playa and surrounding mountains. Some of these cloudbursts can be seen from miles away. This piece was created as an Artist-in-Residence at Black Rock Desert National Conservation Area.
