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.

Western Sierra~Yosemite~Nature Notes~~062311
For this trip, hubby decided we would drive up the side of the western Sierra and then cross over to the eastern Sierra via the Sonora Pass, since the Tioga Pass was still closed. We'd never been over the Sonora Pass and we figured there would still be a lot of snow there, and there was. But, on this afternoon, we headed into Yosemite from the west and figured we'd go as far as we could, daylight permitting. And, the park didn't disappoint us. From the beautiful purple wildflowers blooming, to placid lakes, and lush meadows...ahhh...Yosemite! To see other participants, please go to: http://ramblingwoods.com/
