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.

Living Desert trains



We took the grandson to the Living Desert Reserve a couple of weekends ago to see the trains.  One of the docents had (I think...) a Mexican milk snake and he got to touch it!  Nope...he wasn't too interested in that.  He wanted to go see the trains!!!!  They have one of the finest miniature train models I've ever seen anywhere!  Ben had to go see all the trains (see him marching off to go see another one)!  They run the trains so that they don't run into each other, so there are always a couple of them running at all times for the youngsters!  If you have a chance, it's a great place to take the family.  There's also a carousel which the kids can ride for $2.00, but he also wasn't impressed with that either.  At the end, he asked to go back to see the trains.  Here's a link to their website:  http://www.livingdesert.org/admission.html
