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.

Just a little sunshine and some blossoms!~SOOC 02=12911




As I drove up Highway 74 yesterday to go work my horses, I spotted several trees already blooming. I stopped by a church to take photos of this one. It's only JANUARY! ACK! We had a lot of rain here in the desert in December (over 4 inches), and now we're having warm weather. There are some lupine in bloom up on the road to the mountain and maybe I'll have a chance today to stop and take some closeups of them. SOOC Sunday for January 29, 2011.

Spring blossoms,how lovely. It's raining here in the desert mountains today. It's been a while since the last rain, so it's OK with me. Have a great Sunday.--Inger
