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.

Weekend weather~Sunday stills Challenge~032512




This week's challenge was to photograph spring weather in our locale.  Last weekend, a late winter storm came down the whole length of California.  It started snowing late Saturday afternoon, snowed all night, and this was the view of the San Bernardino mountains Sunday morning.  This would be looking up at Big Bear and Lake Arrowhead and Mt. San Gorgonio.  I took these photos on my early morning walk.  SSC for March 25, 2012. We have another storm coming to our area today, but the snow is only forecast for 6,000 feet and above, which means these mountains could get more snow, as they are up to 10,000 feet in elevation.

Very pretty. We got some of that snow - a little over a foot's worth.

Oh so breathtaking. I love see the snow on the mountains but it doesn't last long enough.
The only place it really hangs on from my vantage point is Mt Lemmon in Tucson. I can see it from where we live.

I love the snow-capped peaks in the local mountains... hope we get more!
