Title: A River Reborn in the Desert
Post by: Sassafras on March 20, 2014, 06:47:47 PM
When I seen this video, I thought about all the times Mick and I hear about how the washes in the deserts of Arizona fill up with water in an instant.  The river, in the video, spectacularly curls around into a waterfall with spectators and a dog watching nearby.

The river Zin, which drains into the Dead Sea, is about 75 miles long and runs through the Negev Desert, in southern Israel. While it's referred to as a river, usually only the dry bed of the Zin can be seen. Also called the Nahal Zin, the river rarely holds any water due to the arid desert conditions.
