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.

Saguaros! Cactus Monday for January 17, 2011

Hubby and I traveled to Arizona and we couldn't head for home without a few photos of the giant saguaro cactus. We found these over at the Superstition Mountains state park. It was a cloudy and hazy day and we couldn't get a good angle on the mountains, unfortunately, so I don't have a decent photo of them! But, that just means we'll have to return for another trip! There are lots of saguaros in the park and I'm always intrigued by them. I'd love to find one with a little owl or woodpecker sticking out of one of the holes, but, that too shall have to wait until another time! Cactus Monday for January 17, 2011.

I love the photos! That saguaro in the second photo has an arm going in a crazy direction.
