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.

Busy night in the desert!!! Valley of Fire state park, Nevada











Hubby and I took the weekend off to drive to Las Vegas, NV. There was a horse clinic there which I audited Saturday morning, so that afternoon we decided to drive out to the Valley of Fire state park. We had never been through the park before and what a treat for our eyes! WOW! Anyway, at one point, we were ready to drive through the Rainbow Valley area and we stopped at a rest area. A wedding party was having their pictures taken, so we wandered down across the road to admire the view of the colorful valley below. I couldn't help but notice all the little animal tracks in the soft sand. Aren't they interesting? If anyone could help me identify them, please let me know what/who they are! It must have been a busy night up there the night before last!

Love that state park! We were there in February...wow! I don't know what took us so long to check it out...and, I'd should say, it was busy the night before. Curious photos!

Buongiorno,
interessanti queste foto...
dal mio punto di vista le tracce con la scia sembrerebbero quello di un animale simile ad una grossa lucertola...
Buona giornata :-)
