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.

Alabama Hills, late afternoon~SkyWatch Friday~042210


Hubby and I wandered around the Alabama Hills late this afternoon, just looking at all the various rock formations. The Alabama Hills are just west of Lone Pine, CA. It has been the movie location for many, many movies. In fact, there is a movie museum there and you can go inside and see items and details from movies such as Gunga Din and Tremors! I spotted this cloud above these rocks in the afternoon. SkyWatch Friday for April 22, 2011. It was a mostly clear day today, quite a change from yesterday when it snowed at June Lake and Mammoth!

I was born in Lone Pine and never tire of seeing what other people find there. This is a terrific shot--although the Alabamas are so photogenic that it's kind of hard to get a bad one. Nonetheless, the alien-looking cloud is a bit eerie. Thanks for mentioning the movie museum. There's also a Lone Pine Film Festival in October, for any film buffs who love gorgeous scenery. Information's available at http://www.lonepinefilmfestival.org/index.asp

Have a great Skywatch Friday/Earth Day!
