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.

WHERE did the weekend go???


I tell you, this past weekend certainly went by quickly!  I spent 5 hours up at the ranch where I board my horses.  I cleaned out two water troughs, unloaded and put away 4 bags of pellets, brushed out both mustangs, took Cali up to the round pen, led Quad down to the arena for some exercise, and cleaned out the mess in my tack room.  I'm not sure where all this energy came from, but I sure do appreciate it!!!  That was the most work I've done in 6 months!  Now that the school year is winding down, I'll have more "horse time".  I took a short morning walk today and didn't see a coyote ear twitch or a white chest the whole time.  Apparently they've moved to the far side of their territory and I don't walk that way!!!  I did see lots of rabbits, however, like these two.  That whole area is hopping with rabbits!  They are EVERYWHERE!  No wonder the coyotes enjoy it so much and are so well fed!

We seem to have a love / hate relationship with our rabbits. My wife puts out rabbit food because she thinks they're cute and fun to watch, then an hour later is cursing because they ate one of her cacti!
