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.

Bird's Nest in Cholla~Cactus Monday and Macro Monday 080210


I took my uncle with me yesterday morning to the Santa Rosa Mountains Visitor Center. It was a pleasant morning here in the desert...not too hot! We wandered the trails there and I pointed out some things to him like this cactus wren nest in a prickly cholla cactus. NOBODY is going to bother this nest! Cactus Monday and Macro Monday for August 2, 2010.

The nest sure blends in well. Isn't it amazing that birds would want to be in such a prickly place? Neat photo!
