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.

Wildflower Season 2009~That's My world 030910











Wildflower season is upon us! I spotted the first lupine up on Highway 74 on Saturday. In a week or two, the mountain road will be alive with lupine and desert shrubs in bloom. But, it is still early. We had another storm move in this weekend and it sprinkled here on Saturday and rained yesterday. Our mountains got another dusting of snow and it is foggy here in the desert this morning, from all the moisture. I'm going to head out with my Canon and hopefully I'll have time before school to stop and take some photos. I found these pictures of last year's wildflowers in my archives. I took these on March 2nd, 2009, so these were actually about a week before any I've seen here in the desert this season. That's My World for Tuesday, March 9, 2010.
