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.

Morning walk~~Nature Notes 051310







I took these pics on my early morning walk. I try to walk for 20 minutes before school at least 3 mornings a week. Mondays aren't good...I'm too frazzled and rushed to even think clearly! But, Tuesday and yesterday I was able to do my morning walk. It clears my head before a busy day with third graders! Nature Notes for May 13, 2010

I would love to be in the desert to take early morning walks like this. These photos are so beautiful enlarged! Nice blues skies...wow!

Sempre meravigliose queste foto del tuo deserto... sarebbe magnifico per me poterci passeggiare al mattino presto con una leggera e fresca brezza mattutina.
Blessings.

You teach third grade? That is a demanding job. I only had a primary class for a couple of years in special education. Getting out to take a walk is a great way to center before a long day..beautiful place to walk too...Michelle

What a beautiful place for a walk. I used to walk most mornings and felt so much better for it.

Lovely walk and pretty scenery. I wish I had time to walk in the morning.

Rambling...yes, it IS demanding, especially with the state testing. Now California wants to evaluate teachers based upon student test scores. I only have these kids for 8 months. Their PARENTS have them for 9 years...

I'm finding that I NEED to walk every day. Otherwise, my right leg starts to cramp up. I had a horse accident two years ago and have permanent nerve damage now and walking seems to loosen up the ole leg muscles!

I've never seen a desert in real life. Thanks for sharing yours! It's beautiful.

I see things differently with a camera at hand, too.
I love your trail. Looks like a lovely place to walk.
