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.

water fountain



I stopped by our local community college over the holiday.  It was peaceful and deserted.  I noticed that the water fountain was on, so I stopped by to take a few photos.  I'm glad it was working and I had a chance to see it because this place is usually very crowded and visitor parking is in the lot miles away! Don't you love the palms?  There are two different species here...the tall palms and the shorter ones, which have the dates.  I forget their names...I'll have to look them up!
