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.

Sprinklers in the morning

Sometimes, if I get up early enough, I can catch the sprinklers at the city-owned golf course, like on this morning.  I actually awoke at 4:00 a.m. and was out the door by 5:15 a.m.  This was about 6:00.  I love the look of sprinklers here in the desert.  We have so few opportunities to see water!  I was going to post this on Watery Wednesday, but I see it's been closed since March.  Does anybody know what happened?

I don't know anything about Watery Wednesdays, but I do know that water n the desert becomes very, very special.

That looks really cool and like a great place to cool off in the desert heat.
