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.

Feeding the ducks (continued)

No, I haven't been to the park since Thursday morning to feed the ducks.  I have 2 brand new 25 pound bags of scratch feed in the back of my car...I thought I'd take the grandson to the park yesterday when I was babysitting him, but it was such a dreary day, we stayed at his house and he played with his trains and then went out back to play in the sand.  We both took an hour's nap!  I AM concerned about the number of ducks there and also the number of mud hens.  I know that during the summer there are white ducks at the park (I've counted 13 of them) and a very few other ducks.  I'm beginning to wonder if I should be contributing to them staying here...The flocks will be heading north soon.  Hubby and I aren't going to be here this weekend...we're driving to Orange County, so I won't be around to feed them then and I figured that with a 3 day weekend, they probably got plenty of food from families.

They will go where there is food. With or without you or others.

BTW, take the 50 lbs. out of your trunk before traveling. ;)
