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.

Fall leaves~Mellow Yellow Monday~102411

I took a drive up through Garner Valley, which is near the top of the Santa Rosa mountains Saturday and Sunday, looking for some fall color.  I found these trees next to the entrance to one of the ranches in Garner Valley.  They put a scarecrow out front, too!  We don't get these beautiful colors down in the desert, so I enjoy my trips up to our local mountains.  They may be getting a thunderstorm this afternoon and if I see clouds after school, I'll take a run up there!  Mellow Yellow Monday for October 24, 2011.  To see MYM, please go to:  http://mellowyellowmonday.blogspot.com/

Very pretty. Fall is so colorful. I just love it. But, I don't much like the leaves after they fall. What a mess getting them raked.
