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.

Watery Wednesday 072810


After hubby and I left Merced, we took state route 49 through Mariposa up to Sonora. Along the way, we spotted this reservoir and bridge. I wouldn't recommend you take that route! It is a narrow, winding road which seemed to last forever! But, this view was worth the stop! That's a LOT of water!!! Watery Wednesday for 072810.

That is a lovely view!! And one advantage to the long and winding road, would be - no trucks! I have this fear of passing trucks, whichever way they are going.

Yes Hwy 49 is quite crazy twisty. Both of my kids have thrown up taking this drive. But it sure is beautiful getting to the river.
