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.

Mountain snow! ~ This Way Thursday 012810 and Outdoor Wednesday













Hubby and I drove up to Idyllwild, CA this past weekend, after our five days of storms passed. The roads were full of snow, but the plows were out, and so were tourists and the locals! It was a beautiful, clear Saturday morning in our local mountains and many people from the desert floor had driven up there with their kids to play in the snow! This Way Thursday and Outdoor Wednesday for January 28, 2010.

What a beautiful series of photos Cheryl, it's like a winter wonderland. We have had very little snow here this year so it's nice to see scenes like this.

Happy TWTW,
Judy

Too funny! I came over here from JessesDesertRose's blog. My husband and I were in Idyllwild that same weekend! We went up there on Sunday, then down to PS and rode in the Indian Canyons on Sunday with the Desert Rose. What a small world! Love your pictures by the way!
