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.

Tracks in the sand~Nature Notes~031512
I've been taking my little pocket Nikon COOLPIX with me in the morning for my walk. Unfortunately, with my leg like it is, that hasn't been that often. I go to my doctor this afternoon and I'll find out why my knee is so swollven and stiff. Anyway, on this morning, which was after a major windstorm in the desert, the desert had been swept clean. There were ripples in the sand and a few tracks. This bush seems to be on a major corridor (bottom photo). Yesterday I saw a lot of bird prints, which I thought were roadrunner tracks, but then I realized that they were ravens. There are a lot of ravens in this area~more ravens than roadrunners. I always enjoy reading the footprints in the sand and I'm glad I was able to see this before a major winter storm moves into the valley over the weekend. Nature Notes for March 15, 2012.
