It was quite amazing. The storm didn't seem that bad to this midwesterner but then when I took a walk at 6am and saw all the mud in Furnace Creek! Talked to the ranger at the roadblock and got more information. The pictures here make the point quite dramatically. I have hiked a lot in the desert but never seen a flash flood like this with so much devastation. I have come away with even more deeper respect for the desert and mother nature.
