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.

Coffee mugs~Sunday Stills Challenge~111410



When our son (and daughter) graduated from college, their aunt paid for each of them to travel to France for a month and stay with her. Our daughter stayed only in France, but our son took his long-time friend (since kindergarten), Aaron, with him. The two boys stayed with Aunt Cathie for a week in southern France, then took the train to Florence and visited the city. Then, they spent several days in Munich, near the great Beer Hall...THAT's a whole other story! Then they took the train to Amsterdam and finally Berlin, then back to Paris. Along the way, they stopped at the Brandenberg Gate and Checkpoint Charlie and our son brought me back two coffee mugs. Unfortunately, at the airport, he lost his art prints from Italy, but the two coffee mugs did make it home! I am so thankful that they had this wonderful opportunity and I will be forever grateful to my sister-in-law!
