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.

Our world from Joshua Tree National Park overlook~~That's My World







Hubby and I drove up to Joshua Tree National Park this weekend, on a gray sky Sunday. While it was a cold and cloudy day, we basically went to "scope out" the park, since it has been over 30 years since we were last there! I believe we had our 1977 VW camper last time we drove through the park! We could see from the Salton Sea, to the Indio Hills, to Mt. San Jacinto. What a beautiful view, even though it was very cold up at Keys Point (at over 5,000 feet)! With the low temperatures and the wind blowing, we quickly ran back to our warm car and headed to lower elevations!

These views are very barren, but they have a quiet beauty.

beautiful landscape. Is there ever snow there?

YES! In fact, they just got more snow on Monday! There is snow on the higher points of the park, like Keys Point, at over 5,000 feet. We can see the snow from the lower valley.

The desert definitely has a beauty all it's own. It's been a very long time since I've been to Joshua tree. Thanks for sharing the photos. :-)
