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.

June Lake~Nature Notes~042111

Hubby and I drove by June Lake and Silver Lake this afternoon. It was snowing in the high elevations of the Sierras (eastern Sierras) and we didn't stop for long. We wanted to get out of the region and back to our hotel in Bishop before the snow really started and the roads were closed!!! But, we enjoyed seeing the Sierras with snow falling on them in late April. We stopped by the Silver Lodge Resort and they weren't even open yet (their opening date was this past weekend), but we'll make reservations in mid-June, once school is over! Believe me, I CAN'T WAIT!!!! In the meantime, the eastern Sierras are still receiving snow, so who knows what they will look like in mid-June! Nature Notes for April 21, 2011.

The snow looks a lot prettier there than in my yard. It's melted now, but most days we have had some fall here in western NY...Michelle
