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.

Coyotes ~Nature Notes~051012
http://ramblingwoods.com/ NOTE: Somebody asked if I was nervous around the coyotes. No, I'm not. I'm more nervous around my horses because I can't move fast enough to get out of their way and they are so big! I've always had dogs and I did scare these coyotes off once by yelling and waving my arms when all 4 of them were staring at me. I only hope they do NOT attack a small dog because many people DO take their dogs for a walk right through their territory. Heck, I walked right by them for MONTHS and never saw them myself! Coyotes HAVE snatched small dogs from people in Palm Springs, right in the city. These attacks are documented. I do keep a wary eye on them and they do keep wary eyes on me, so we are at an unwritten understanding right now.
