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.

Weekend storm, Joshua Tree



I wasn't sure what kind of afternoon we would have up at Joshua Tree National Park on Sunday.  We arrived right after a major downpour.  The streets were running with water, roofs had been torn off buildings, and debris was all over the city of Joshua Tree.  But, the storm moved on to the west and the skies were clearing when we entered the park.  It was a good day to be there, after all.

I would imagine it could be quite scary to be in the park during a bad storm. Glad you arrived after it had moved on. :) Great photos!
