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.

Petroglyphs Joshua Tree National Park~That's My World and Outdoor Wednesday 041310




When we returned to Joshua Tree National Park on Sunday, with our daughter and son-in-law, we stopped at the Barker Dam area and hiked back to the dam. This time, I took the loop back to the parking lot. Along the way, was a place to stop and admire the Indian petroglyphs. I stood there for a while, admiring them, while the wind whistled through the trees and nearby rocks, before getting back on the trail and back to civilization. That's My World for Tuesday, April 13, 2010 and Outdoor Wednesday for April 14, 2010.

The sound of the wind whistling must have been a bit eerie while looking at something that goes back in time, like this. These are something I want to experience...must get there before the real "heat" arrives in the desert.

This would be an interesting place to go. Fascinating curves of the rocks.
