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.

Morning walk and paw prints










Yesterday morning hubby was sleeping late, so I gathered up my camera (Nikon) and drove up Highway 74 to the Art Smith trailhead. I walked up Carrizo Canyon for a while. It apparently had rained (again) the night before because the ground was saturated, wet, and there weren't any prints, except for these! Hmmm...something with claws...a raccoon? Any ideas? It's too small to be a coyote. I enjoyed my morning walk and the desert smelled so fresh and clean! Ahhhh......!!!
