Instead of driving home yesterday on the freeway, I went my old route, which is near the vineyards in Thermal. This vineyard was irrigating the vines. It was eerily quiet there except for the gurgling of the water. Very peaceful. A nice way to end the work week, don't you think?
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.

This pretty fountain is at Marriott's Shadow Ridge. They don't always turn on their fountains, but they seem to have them on in the mornings. I stopped there one Saturday morning to take this picture. For other Watery Wednesday photos, please visit: http://waterywednesday.blogspot.com/

Scenic Sunday/January 25, 2009: That's a shot of Mt. San Jacinto taken from Shadow Ridge Resort in early morning light. You can still see the snow on the top of the mountain. It was a slightly cloudy morning, but I thought the sunlight on the mountain was quite pretty. For other Scenic Sunday photos, please visit:

Did you know there are longhorns up in our mountains? Well, I didn't! And, there sure are! Just look at them! Hubby and I discovered this herd as we were out for a Sunday drive, up by Cahuilla Mountain. Aren't they beautiful? I was a bit hesitant to get out of my cozy, comfy car to take a few photos and their horns were VVVVEEEEERRRRRRYYYYYY long, but they were actually curious and friendly! I hope to see them again!

Sunday morning I awoke early and went to the Palm Desert visitor center. Cuistot restaurant is also nearby, so I strolled along the pathways. It was very pretty indeed! Lots of water fountains were there and there was a beautiful blue rock pathway. It was very relaxing. There was a half moon above and it was a warm Southern California desert morning. People were out walking...a good way to start the day! Enjoy the photos.
