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.

Rock formations Joshua Tree National Park~Sunday Stills Challenge~102311
Joshua Tree has some of the most unique and beautiful rock formations I've ever seen, although the Alabama Hills is also spectacular. It's just that JTree is an hour away! Hubby and I go there several times a year, including this trip in August, right after a thunderstorm rolled through the valley and the higher elevations. That's hubby taking a photograph of a lizard on the rock. You can see how HUGE that rock is! He's 6' and he looks tiny next to it! Anyway, we always enjoy driving out to Joshua Tree National Park and each time, there is somewhere new to go to in the park. We once went in February right after a snowstorm and the joshua trees were covered with snow, but that's another post. Sunday Stills Challenge for October 23, 2011.
