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.

Lower Yosemite Falls~Watery Wednesday 071410







When hubby and I visited Yosemite a couple of weeks ago, we hiked to the bottom of the lower Yosemite Falls. Neither one of us had been there before. We have always driven right by them, but this time, armed with our cameras, we headed toward them. And, what beauty awaited us! There was so much mist from the water hitting the rocks that we had to shield our cameras! I'm glad we stopped and saw the falls. Watery Wednesday for June 14, 2010.

I am so glad you stopped to see the falls too...so I can see them again. I love the thunderous sound they make, even more then than when I was there in late March. They ARE beautiful, as is all of Yosemite for that matter.

Upon seeing your photos, I immediately think of the sound of the water tumbling down. Every twist and turn in the park is an excellent photo op!

We are experiencing terrible heat in Budapest. Good to see something cooling here:)
