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.

Hubby and I drove home yesterday from San Marcus.  The ocean area was socked in with fog and we drove through fog until we hit Highway 371 to Anza and Highway 79 to Warner Springs.  I stopped at one point, hopped out of the car, and took this photo. We don't often see fog here in the desert and we enjoyed it down by the ocean last weekend.  We awoke this morning to...RAIN!  Yup.  "Subtropical moisture" from the Gulf of California and from Mexico came up through out valley.  It's a nice change, but the weather forecast for next week is HEAT, HEAT, and more HEAT...110 degrees (ugh!)
