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.

wildflowers in the desert

I took these photos yesterday afternoon after spending the morning cleaning our daughter's house in preparation for her wedding this afternoon. I wanted to drive out by the Coachella Valley Preserve to see the wildflowers. A couple of weekends ago, they were just starting to come out. Now, they are in full bloom and the desert there is covered with acres of yellow and purple lupine! Aren't they gorgeous?
