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.

fire engine in the park~Ruby Tuesday~121311




I stayed home yesterday because I'd been exhausted and sick all weekend.  However, I did have to run out and buy cat food as my cats looked at me with sad eyes which said, "We're STARVING!"...sigh...(Believe me, they are NOT starving!)  Anyway, I stopped by another local park and took some pics.  This fire engine for kids is in the Rancho Mirage park.  When our children were small, I always took them to this park.  The engine wasn't there then, but they had lots of swings at the other end.  The park was completely deserted, but on weekends, there sometimes are art shows there.  They have tennis courts at the far side and that's where the swings and picnic benches are located.  I may return today, as I need to run out and buy groceries for lunch, and I also want to see our mountains covered with last night's snow!  Ruby Tuesday for December 13, 2011. Isn't it cute?  I mean, what kid wouldn't want to climb on it, right?  Hmmmm....I'll need to take the grandson over to see it!  To visit Ruby Tuesday, please go to:   http://workofthepoet.blogspot.com/

Now I know why they paint fire trucks red; that color really does get noticed! Hope you're feeling better today.

I wish I'd had fire engine to climb on when I was a kid!

SOMETHING RED

Something cherry, something blue,
Something scarlet just for you;
Something blazing as the sun,
Something red when day is done.

Great red contribution! Since Soninlaw is a firefighter, fire engines have a special meaning to me.
