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.

Rafting on the Merced River~Nature Notes 072910
















When hubby and I visited Yosemite National Park in June, the Merced River was raging lower in the park, but at this area, it was peaceful. Quite a few rafters were out enjoying the water. Look how calm the river looks. But, don't be deceived. This is a powerful river! Yes, these are pics of the same river, but further downstream! Interesting, eh? Nature Notes for July 29, 2010. Enjoy your day!

That looks so relaxing..I would like the quiet gentle trip, but I know others like to do the dangerous water ones...Michelle
