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.

Look out~Giraffe~SkyWatch Friday 052810


When my uncle and I visited the Living Desert Reserve last Saturday, it was before hours at the park and the giraffes weren't out of their nightly pen. Their alfalfa was in the high feeder and the keepers were cleaning out their corral, but they were nowhere in sight. Fortunately, this metal one is always on alert! Here it is peeking over the acacia trees. SkyWatch Friday for May 28, 2010.
