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.

My wedding this past July was pink and green themed. My mom managed to find those exact same pink and green cacti. They confused the heck out of me until I realized they were grafts.
