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.

Storm on the Rim ~ Sunday Best~ 082811
This area of the Mogollon Rim, which is near Black Canyon Lake, has always been creepy to me. First, it's in a burned out area of the forest because of the Rodeo-Chediski fire of 2002. Second, it is very isolated. There is only a forest road through this area. Hubby and I took that road a few days after we drove by on this afternoon and we only saw two other cars the whole afternoon. NOT a place to get a flat tire! I like the darkness of this photo and the one I used as my header. Yes, it really was that dark! The rim gets some incredible thunderstorms up there during August afternoons. I miss being up on the rim and I look forward to our next visit. "Sunday Best" for August 28, 2011. Please visit this link for "Sunday Best" http://www.aruraljournal.com/
