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.

A Year Ago~Scenic Sunday 011710





























This weekend, a year ago, began with fog moving into our local mountains. I board my horses up there as the desert is just too hot in the summer. And, we enjoy driving up through the mountains to see them. We go from 200 feet above sea level to 4,000 feet, and the contrast is amazing. We drive from the desert floor, through pinyon, past the Ponderosa pines, to the wide valley where we board them. These are some photos from a year ago, and our drive from the desert to the mountains. It snowed last year on this weekend and snow is forecast starting tonight again. Five days of rain is in our forecast, with snow coming, once again, to our local mountains.
