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.

"Mail"~Sunday Series 52 ~082811

This is my first time participating in A Rural Journal's Sunday Series 52 and I'm so excited!  This sounds like a fun weekly challenge.  I took the Canon out this morning and decided to focus on the different mailboxes here in my town, since our post office looks like a prison.  (I'm NOT doing a series on our post office!  It is neither historical nor interesting!)  But, while driving around this morning, I discovered that there are some VERY interesting mailboxes here in Palm Desert!  Some are rock, some are metal, some are straight, some are curved, and some are very creative (like my neighbor's!)...In fact, I think she has the most unusual one I saw all morning!  So, let me introduce you to the mailboxes of Palm Desert, CA! The last one belongs to my neighbor.  Sunday Series 52, "mail", for August 28, 2011. To see this challenge, please go to:  http://www.aruraljournal.com/

Your neighbors really go all out with their mail boxes. Everywhere I live we have a postbox. Don't think we can decorate them.
