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.

Julian, CA






Hubby and I took a drive to Julian on Saturday. He wanted to buy an apple pie there and I just went along for the ride and to get out of our stiffling desert heat. July is the hottest month here in the desert and sometimes we will just take a day and drive somewhere else to get out of the heat. Julian is a small community of apple ranches up in our local mountains. It is past Warner Springs and during the fall, when they have their apple harvest, it is packed every weekend. We stopped for lunch at the Julian cafe and bakery and bought an apple pie to take home and enjoy. It was a nice change from the desert heat, even for a day!

ah, yes...Julian. We really enjoy a day trip to this sweet little mountain community. And, the pies...delicious. Yes, you are cooking in the desert now! Wow! The 'ole thermometer just keeps on an upward trend. Take care out there!
