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.

Lone Pine Road~Sunday Stills Challenge~091811
We stopped in Lone Pine early yesterday morning after staying in Ridgecrest overnight and drove out along our favorite road there, Lubeken Road. It's right next to a trailer park and heads up toward the Sierra and isn't traveled much. In fact, there's a huge cattle ranch there and we sometimes see the cattle either on the road or alongside it. But, yesterday, they were all in a pasture out yonder. And, we had the road all to ourselves! We were surprised to see the meadow there and the roadside FULL of wild sunflowers. I don't know the name of these sunflowers, but we have them down in the desert, too. There were EVERYWHERE!!! Sunday Stills Challenge for September 18, 2011.
