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.

Spring buds~Macro Monday~032512


I found these buds on the trees out in front at the Living Desert Reserve yesterday.  We took the grandson there to see the trains because both his parents had to work.  It was warm while we were there, but then clouds formed across the valley and by late afternoon, it was sprinkling, so I'm glad we had the chance to go when we did!  Macro Monday for March 26, 2012.   To visit Macro Monday, at Lisa's Chaos, please follow this link:    http://lisaschaos.com/
