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.

Desert trees~That's My World 042610






















Some people think the desert doesn't have many trees. That isn't true. The desert actually has many different kinds of trees, from palms to smoke trees to palo verdes to desert willows. I love to stop and admire them and see how they have adapted to desert conditions. Here are some samples of trees that grow in the desert. That's My World for Tuesday, April 26, 2010.

hello,
questo tuo mondo è veramente molto bello..
Sono d'accordo con te quando dici che il deserto non è privo di alberi...
Buona serata.

I love the California desert. I miss it once in a while up here in the Pacific Northwest. But I have to be honest, I don't miss the heat. - Margy

I was just in Phoenix and saw many of these trees. I especially liked the green bark of the Palo Verde.
