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.

Hungry Cali~Camera Critters 071710 and SOOC Sunday


A friend of mine asked, "Why don't you ever post pictures of your horses on this blog?" Well, I have a separate blog (http://deserthorses.blogspot.com/) which is devoted to them. I've tried to keep this one separate, as sort of a travel blog, but since I have this photo as the header on the desert horses one, I decided to post it here and post it on Camera Critters. Cali is one of my little Wyoming fillies that we adopted two years ago. She is from Salt Wells Creek. Another gal, up in northern California, has Cali's brother, who is a sooty palomino. We have visited him a couple of times. He and Scout's sister have been trained and are used as pack horses going into Yosemite. What a life! I don't usually feed the mustangs with rubber tubs as they have a huge hay feeder and Cali has her own feeder (Scout claims the big feeder!), and she had already had sweet feed and beet pulp. I think she was just curious about the rubber tub! Anyway, she sure had a good time with it. I didn't have my camera handy when she turned it up and was licking the side of it! Horses! They are so funny! Camera Critters for July 17, 2010. If you are interested in visiting my other blogs, they are ALL listed on the sidebar at desert horses.

She is a REAL love-bug! She's the sweetest horse that I have and I have five horses! Don't worry...she gets PLENTY of food!! She was just playing with the bowl!

Cara amica mia,
questa foto è veramente bellissima, nella naturalità e dolcezza di questo intelligente animale.
Mi chiedo, guardando una foto simile, come certi umani possano fare del male a gli animali in genere !
Poter guardare foto simili fa bene al cuore :-))
Grazie di gondividerle con noi tutti, che amiamo gli animali.
