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.

Solvang, CA

Solvang is a small Danish-themed town in California, about 30 minutes outside of Santa Barbara.  We frequently stay in Buellton, which is next to Solvang, on our trips to northern California.  My sister-in-law lives in Napa and we are heading up there for an after-Christmas dinner tomorrow night.  We love to stay in Solvang and eat breakfast at the Little Mermaid restaurant.  We always have the abelskevier (round pancakes) and relax before hitting the road.  Don't they look yummy?  I forgot to take a photo before I devoured them, so I'm sorry for the messy plate!  Yum, yum!

Solvang is a quaint town. Haven't been there in years. Isn't that where Anderson's Pea Soup place is? Breakfast looks good. Enjoy your family visit.
