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.

First night's sunset



I couldn't wait for the first night's sunset up on the rim.  I remember, from when we were there in 2000, how beautiful the sunsets and sunrises were up there.  So, at dusk, I walked down to the highway.  Across the road from the cabins is a western town, full of shops.  These were some of the views that evening.  The whole time we were there, we saw beautiful sunrises and sunsets, like this one.  Each one was different, but unique in its own way.

Looks like you traveled back in time with that sunset in the old west.

Your new header is very beautiful. And, I love the sunset against the western town. Makes you feel like you're seeing what your ancestors saw a hundred years or so ago.
