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.

Desert Willow sprinklers~That's My World~071911
I took these photos one morning in June, before I had to leave for school. I got to the golf course early one morning, before my usual walking time, and saw quite a show! There were rainbows everywhere. That's My World for Tuesday, July 19, 2011. To see other worlds, please visit: http://showyourworld.blogspot.com/ *** A couple of you have written comments about whether or not this is recycled water. Here in the desert, nearly every golf resort DOES use recycled water. We also have a very conservation-oriented water district. Right now, they are offering residential properties an incentive to install drip sprinklers. Good question and I'm glad you guys asked! Our water comes from the Colorado River, but we also have a large aquafer underground from all of the snow and runoff from our local mountains. We have the 10,000 foot Mt. San Jacinto and the 11,000 foot Mt. Gorgornio which provide water for the aquafer.
