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.

Oh! How pretty! I photographed a whole lot of the red "Claret Cup Cactus" around the Barker Dam and Hidden Valley loop trails! I didn't see any of these beauties! There's always this next weekend...
