The return of the flood waters are because of heavy rain in mountainous regions several miles away from the arid land
For centuries the dry area, which is a massive creek bed, has seen the disappearance and return of water in a series of flash floods

The re-birth of a river after years of drought has been captured on camera in the Negev desert, Israel.
The waters of the river Zin are seen gushing down a dry riverbed, much to the delight of locals and a highly excitable dog.
It is thought the return of the flood waters are because of heavy rain in mountainous regions several miles away from the arid land.
The landscape is dramatic in places with plunging canyons and meandering dusty paths, which cause small waterfalls and the water to ride over the bumpy, dusty terrain.
The wave is impressive considering it is caused by rainfall miles away, and it does not take long for a convincing stream that gushes down holes in the rock to appear, strengthening all the time.
The appearance of the river is highly unpredictable and it has been years since enough rainfall has caused a flash flood in the desert, experts said.
