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.

Salt River Canyon~SOOC Sunday~052911




Hubby and I are over in Arizona for the weekend and this afternoon we drove through the Salt River Canyon. We love all of the interesting formations in this canyon, which is like a miniature Grand Canyon! Unfortunately there aren't that many turnouts, so we had to stop when we could, run out of the car in the wind, and snap photos! So, here they are! SOOC Sunday for May 29, 2011.

a few years ago I floated down the Salt River in a giant inner-tube (truck tire size) and had an absolute BLAST! It was a HOT HOT HOT August day...loved it!
