Is That Rain
That I Smell?

On Sat July 18 2015 we had a very nice summer rain,
at last, in Joshua Tree and in the early AM I was
walking Nicholas my fun dog and there was the smell
that occurs after every rain, my sister had asked
about the smell a few months ago on her last visit,
so i looked it up.
The aritcle is by Mojave, I
found the article on

Waking up the other morning to the smell of rain,
well actually the smell of Larrea-Tridentata was
so invigorating. After my lifelong obsession with
this botanical wonder I think that it is time to blog
about it. Being that this bush, commonly known as
the Creosote Bush is one of the most common plants
of the American Southwest, it exists abundantly in
the Mojave Desert but it also grows in most other
deserts of North America. Many people don't realize
that this plant is the reason that they love the smell
of rain in the desert. When I was a teenager and I
first realized that Creosote was the cause of that
wonderful smell I would spray them with a hose or
break a branch off and bring it inside the house and
rinse it in the sink to get that wonderful scent,
in fact I still do this from time to time.

I do not like the smell as much as Mojave but
now I know the cause.

History notes
Joshua Tree

A history of Joshua Tree Ca
from the J.T.
click here for the full story

The earliest known history on the Joshua Tree community
is when homesteaders first filed on a site in the fall
of 1911. Within a few short years, the Joshua Tree Townsite
Company constructed its first offices along the Twentynine
Palms Road, close to the West Park Entrance. Then in 1938,
Congress passed the "Baby Homestead Act,"allowing five-acre,
non-agricultural homestead sites. Developers had hoped this
act would bring new settlers to the area but World War II
intervened. Instead, the war triggered gas rationing, restrictions
on building supplies, and prevented growth into the outlying desert
areas. By 1941, Joshua Tree's total population reached forty-nine
people with twenty-two occupied buildings.
