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.

Cave Creek regional park
By noon yesterday, the sun was peeking out from behind the clouds and I was ready to head out. Hubby was lollygagging around ...sigh...but finally got it together. I'd heard about the regional park at Cave Creek, so we headed over there. For $6.00, you can enter the park and hike and take photos. There is a visitor center there with two very friendly folks and I stopped and bought some postcards to take home. We ate our lunch there (lunch from AJ's...I had a salad) and then headed up one of the trails. I could see a mountain biker coming down the trail, so I warned hubby to watch for him as he was zooming down the trail. Clouds started turning dark up there and we didn't wish to get too far up the trail, but isn't the afternoon light gorgeous? As we drove away, it got darker and darker.
