Deserts and Beyond

Deserts and beyond...places in and around the southern California deserts and beyond. Photo taken at Canyon Lake, in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona, December 2011. A few minutes later, after the sun disappeared, these cliffs were their normal color. They were only golden for a short time and I'm glad we were able to view them in their glory.

early signs of spring: sweet acacia


This sweet acacia was in the visitor's center parking lot. LOOK at the blossoms! And, it smells wonderful!

I too love the smell of sweet acacia blossoms. I smelled some the other day while walking in my Tucson neighborhood, though I didn't see the tree. Beautiful picture!
