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.

Beautiful buds. They look like what I would call "Pussy Willows" - are they?

I just love spring with all the buds and blossoms. Too bad my allergies don't like them. A constant battle.

Been to Bishop several times years ago.

That is a great shot of the "opening" of the bud.
