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.

Ocotillo in bloom

As I drove up the mountain, from the desert floor, I pass through rugged, rocky hills before I come upon the pinyon forest. I spotted this ocotillo in bloom last weekend and pulled over to snap this photo. Spring is coming to the desert and our foothills and I'm hoping to get some photos of the wildflowers and lupine blooming this weekend.

It will be a while before it blooms up here, but I will enjoy your photos.
