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.

Gotcha!


I spent about an hour yesterday afternoon with a group of ravens (an "unkindness" of ravens). They had killed a baby gopher and were busy tearing it apart when I came upon them during my now-afternoon walk. I just don't have time to walk in the mornings anymore, so I've switched to the afternoons at my favorite walking spot. I enjoy watching the afternoon light. Anyway, there were about 8 of them and I followed them and they, in turn, kept a wary eye on me. This fellow enjoyed circling above me and then landing in the field and doing it all over again! If you wish to read the full story and see all the photos I took, please head on over to my other blog: http://rav4adventures.blogspot.com
