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.

Cactus in snow~Cactus Monday 071910


Ahhhh....I sat here this morning and revisited some of my snow photos from last winter. Maybe that will help me cope with the 111 degrees which are in today's forecast? This little cactus was in the middle of snow. Our local mountains had quite a lot of snow this winter. In fact, the ranch owner where I board my horses up in the mountains, complained about this past winter's record snow and rainfall! Aaaaahhhhh...to revisit those days! Cactus Monday for July 19, 2010.

Welcome Back and welcome back with such a wonderful 'cool' cactus! I think we can all use this image and dream of cooler weather.

Wow this is a baby cholla! Is that about all it snows where you live? Great shot. I am a succulent lover that lives in Roseville, CA. My front and back yard are nothing but (except for the grass, which I would love to dig up). LOL

Can't wait to see more of your pictures. I use mainly a canon point and shot also. HCM!
