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.

Tehachapi tree

We found this tree when we stopped in Tehachapi, on our way back from northern California and I stopped to hop out of the car to snap this picture of it.  Then we took the road down to the Tehachapi loop and along the way, a bobcat crossed the road right in front of it!  He was FAT!!!

That's a beautiful drive the backway through Tehachapi.

That tree looks like it should be in Africa!

Where was your camera when the bob cat walked by? Too fast?

This a really neat tree. A fat bobcat? Must have just ate a small animal for lunch

What fun to read about our town. We have a huge bobcat that lives around here and sometimes struts by our house like he owns the place, which perhaps he really does. That's a great tree and there are some really beautiful ones in town too. Not too many here in the canyon.
