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.

Longhorns! Camera Critters for January 21, 2009











Did you know there are longhorns up in our mountains? Well, I didn't! And, there sure are! Just look at them! Hubby and I discovered this herd as we were out for a Sunday drive, up by Cahuilla Mountain. Aren't they beautiful? I was a bit hesitant to get out of my cozy, comfy car to take a few photos and their horns were VVVVEEEEERRRRRRYYYYYY long, but they were actually curious and friendly! I hope to see them again!

Nice critter pix & good reminder of what the land is really like (except in those Gorgeous California wild flower springs...)

They are beautiful creatures. It must have been exciting to see them up close with their long pointy horns!
