I have always loved the smell of desert rain.  I am not 100% sure what causes that unique smell to this region, but I had missed it for many years when I lived up North.  It's raining today and it is good to be home.  Does anyone know what I am talking about, or more specifically what causes the unique aroma?  I have heard it's the Creosote bush, but I do not know for sure.

Thanks eintob, now if only they made air fresheners for my car with that sent...i know it wouldn't be the same but it would still be nice.

I don't know what causes the smell but I do know it's great when you are hiking and it starts to pour, the smells are great and the desert animals are very active. It's definitely worth getting soaked over.
