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.

The pass and clouds

We have a weather pattern here in the Coachella Valley like this frequently.  Since there is a 10,000 foot mountain on the left side of this photo, and an 11,000 foot high mountain on the right, the clouds get caught in the middle.  The middle is Banning, Beaumont, Calimesa, and Yucaipa.  It was like this all day yesterday.  The clouds were just caught there and didn't move.  The rest of the Coachella Valley was sunny, but not in the pass.  They do make an interesting photo!

Wow, that is interesting that the clouds don't move when it gets like that.
