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 sea of yellow grass~Mellow Yellow Monday 022210


I drove hubby out to a corner of the Coachella Valley Preserve Saturday afternoon. We were on our way to our daughter's house for dinner with her, her fiance, and my aunt and uncle, who live in San Diego. It was a good weekend for family. Along the way, hubby and I stopped at these sand dunes and walked back to view them. It had rained in the desert that morning, but by late afternoon, most of the clouds had moved on, and the sky over our desert was blue. Our mountains got another dusting of snow and rain and the clouds hung around them for another day. I like this pic of the yellow grasses. Mellow Yellow Monday for February 22, 2010.
