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.

Coachella Valley Preserve, Thousand Palms











In the 35 years I've lived here in our desert, I've NEVER visited the Coachella Valley Preserve in Thousand Palms until Saturday. Saturday was the perfect day for driving and taking pictures, so I finally stopped and hiked around a little while. The signs posted me to the dangers there, but other people were out and around and I figured they scared off all the wildlife! An owl had been spotted in one of the palms that morning.
