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.

"M" is for mountains~ABC Wednesday~April 13, 2011





The Coachella Valley is surrounded by mountains. They sit to the north (Joshua Tree), south (Santa Rosa mountains), west (San Jacinto Mountains) and east (Chocolate Mountains). So, when I go out for my morning walk, I see them all around me. I'm always fascinated by how the sunlight hits them at different times of the day. "M" is for mountains...ABC Wednesday for April 13, 2011. To see other participants, please go to: http://abcwednesday-mrsnesbitt.blogspot.com/

I love the way the sunlight plays on the mountains here at certain times of the day...dawn and dusk!
We had a touch of snow on Superstition last weekend...so pretty but didn't last long!

as a Midwesterner, born and bred, I moon over mountains!!! I have never seen a mountain I did not like.....
the Green Mountains, San Gabriel and the Rockies in Colorado and Montana, and oh, the Alps. I have done pretty good at finding mountains to admire, but unfortunately not walk among daily.
Thanks for a great M blog,
