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.

Think Green Thursday~Fall Leaves







This "Think Green Thursday" post is about fall colors~the reds, browns, oranges, and yellows of the maple trees up at the ranch in the mountains. Aren't the colors pretty? Even the cottonwoods up there are turning yellow. There is a little one down in a gully that I pass every time I go there and this weekend I'll stop and take some photos of it. And, with our blast of cold air the last couple of days, it will be interesting to see the trees this weekend. The news just said it is 33 degrees up at the horse ranch this morning.
