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.

Quiet lake, Yosemite~~Watery Wed for 090209


We came across this peaceful lake right after we left Olmstead Point in Yosemite. It's not Lake Mary and I don't recall seeing a name for it. There were a couple of ducks on it when we stopped and an owl was hooting in a tree across from it, so we really enjoyed this stop. Watery Wednesday for September 2, 2009.

That's beautiful. I am guessing this is a "hike in" lake. I love the Yosemite and Mammoth Lakes area. I was there in July and could return in a heart beat! It's nice you were quiet enough to hear the sounds too! Best medicine yet!
