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.

Mountain bluebirds~Sunday Stills Challenge~061911
Hubby and I FINALLY got high-speed Internet in Bishop, CA. What a relief! I have been going through withdrawl! Anyway, Friday we drove down from Mammoth Lakes to Bishop. What a shock! To go from snow and 62 degrees to heat and 92 degrees! What a difference! We nearly turned around to drive back, but our cabin, which was $152 a night, went up to $245 for the weekend, so calmer heads prevailed! Besides, we had a reservation in Bishop. We drove up to Convict Lake along the way and fishermen were all busy. I spotted these two mountain bluebirds. The male had an insect in his mouth and he flew into their nest and popped back out a couple of times while I stood there and watched. Convict Lake was full of different species of birds. I would love to return there either early morning or late afternoon to watch them all. Sunday Stills Challenge for June 19, 2011.
