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.

Jedidiah Smith Redwoods, Northern CA~Outdoor Wednesday 070710







Yesterday, on our way to Santa Rosa, CA, we drove through the Jedidiah Smith Redwoods. The redwood trees are absolutely incredible. They reach for the sky and are very broad around their bases! I wish we had had more time to visit them, but we put in a 13 hour drive and we were extremely fatigued! Today, in Santa Rosa, we took it easy and visited vineyards in Dry Creek Valley. Outdoor Wednesday for July 7, 2010. Happy Birthday, Dad! May you rest in peace!

The shot of the redwoods with the sun behind is just beautiful. It's not an easy shot to pull off and you managed it well!
