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.

Miniature trains at the Living Desert~Outdoor Wednesday for May 26, 2010











The Living Desert Reserve, in Palm Desert, has a large model train exhibit. This exhibit has grown over the years and is manned by volunteers who make sure the trains are running for the children who come to view it. And, many kids do! There is a model Grand Canyon as well as a mining town on the other side. I like the miniature farm myself! Aren't they cute? There are several trains that run all day and they come with whistles, too! I enjoy seeing the little trains when I visit the Living Desert. Outdoor Wednesday for May 26, 2010.
