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.

Thunderheads~That's My World 081710
I went down to school yesterday to begin getting my room ready for the first day of school (...ACK!). On my way home, part of the Coachella Valley was covered by growing thunderheads. There were several over our local mountains. It was HOT and HUMID all day! Another day like yesterday is forecast for today. Ahhh...the monsoon season! The problem with all this humidity is that if you step outside, the humidity almost knocks you down! Our janitors were busy transferring desks into classrooms (we are going from 20 students per classroom to 32!) and I felt so sorry for them! The humidity is forecast for the next few days, then hopefully we will return to a dry heat! 109 on a humid day is a LOT different than 109 on a dry, low humidity one! That's My World for Tuesday, August 17, 2010.
