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.

Snow and yuccas

I took these photos up on Highway 74, the Palms to Pines Highway last Sunday morning. Another storm is moving into our valley and snow is forecast down to 3,500 feet (again) on Saturday. It is just so unusual to see yuccas covered with snow! Aren't they beautiful?
