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.

SOOC 081410~desert plants

I took my uncle with me a few weeks ago to visit the Santa Rosa Mountains Visitor Center. He and my aunt recently moved to the desert and they had never been to it before and I wanted to show them where it was. It has easy trails for walking and has a variety of plants, as you can see! All of these pics are straight out of the camera. The top one is an agave blossom, the next one is a desert willow, then a palm tree and its fronds, and a smoke tree is on the bottom. SOOC for August 14, 2010. For more participants, please visit:
