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.

Cactus blossoms~Superstition Mountains~Cactus Monday 051611



Hubby and I stopped once we came around the corner in the Superstition Mountains, on our way to Roosevelt Lake on Saturday. The mountains were a golden color and so we pulled over to take some photos. I spotted this barrel cactus with its blossoms just starting to open. Cactus Monday 051611

It must have been so beautiful!

I am happy you are still playing Cactus Monday. There were so few lately and that's why I let Mr Linky lapse. Only two of you care so we'll see what happens. Please stop by on Mondays.
