Desert Arroyo

An arroyo found in the desert is a dry creek or stream bed that seasonally fills and flows after various rain falls. An Arroyo is a wash, gulch, or dry creek that temporarily flows with water after rain fall or seasonal weather patterns. They provide water to the desert biosphere and has a specific biome with vegetation dependent on seasonal flow. They are often found in drainages or flat bottoms of canyons that don’t have water resources most of the year thereby hosting very arrid independent vegetation.
