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.

spring in the desert~Pullingmymaskoff~May 18, 2011





Spring in the desert is in full bloom right now and the desert plants are showing off all of their colors. From flowers to lavendar to the saguaro, they are all opening up and revealing their beauty. Shortly, however, they will do dormant until next year, when they will open up again. "Spring" challenge, Pulling My Mask Off, for May 18, 2011.
