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.

clouds

We are back in triple digit temps...sigh...it was so nice to have a few days of cool weather and clouds.  Clouds make such a difference here in the desert.  This weekend, with two days of high clouds, it was absolutely delightful!  Temps were in the 80's, not triple digits.  But, it will be 103 here today and then 104 for the next 2 days.  Ugh!  I'm so tired of 100+ days.  I want FALL to stay!  This was the view of my walking area one day last week.  Lately, it's just been clear and warm.  I'm not even going out this morning...too hot and no clouds.  Phooey!

Same here...another sigh. It was so nice to have a few days of cooler weather. I totally agree with you about the clouds. They make such a huge difference.

I know the feeling! We finally had a drop-off in temps last week that carried through but I think we will be getting back up there before October is over.

Yesterday morning was BEAUTIFUL but was a scorcher
by afternoon!

Beautiful shot. We're hoping to get out to the desert this weekend. Looks like the nights have been cooling off a little (?)
