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.

4 wheelin'~That's My World for 092209







My husband took my car this weekend to drive to Santa Monica and left me with his. Actually, I traded my 1999 Honda Accord to our son for his 1997 Toyota Rav4, since he has the baby. While driving back down the mountain on Saturday, I decided to take the road up to Santa Rosa mountain, which is only negotiated by 4 wheel drives. It is a steep road with lots of bumps and ruts and is definitely NOT for regular vehicles! I pulled off at one point and took these pics looking west, toward the Indian canyons of Palm Springs and the San Jacinto mountains. I only went halfway up, since I was alone, but some time, when I have hubby with me, I would like to drive to the top. That's My World for September 22, 2009. Enjoy your day!

I love the line of clouds coming away from the peaks-- looks almost like a volcano letting off steam!
