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.

Aspendell Lake~Weekend Reflections~April 30, 2011


While we were having daytime temperatures in the 90's last week, it was still snowing up in the eastern Sierras. In fact, shortly after we visited this lake, Aspendell Lake, north of Bishop, CA, the clouds gathered and it began to snow! So, I'm glad I was able to get this photo before the sun disappeared! See the clouds coming up over the mountains? Yup. By afternoon, it was snowing again in the Sierras! Weekend Reflections for April 30, 2011.

We are at the southern tail end of the Sierras and it was 28F here this morning. It's amazing what a little altitude can do. Beautiful photo.--INger

4 seasons in a day. When you are too hot, you just have to drive to the mountains to cool off.
