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.

Taking a break from the desert




Hubby and I drove up to Hurkey Creek county park, which is near Idyllwild, CA, across the highway from Lake Hemet.  It was 107 in the desert and 83 degrees up there.  Hmmmm...that wasn't a difficult decision!  Hubby prepped dinner ~~ chicken, lamb, asparagas, and yellow squash, packed a bottle of wine (for himself) and off we went about 3:30 yesterday afternoon.  By the time we arrived there, about 4:30 p.m., the park was pretty much cleared out and QUIET (not like last Sunday...) We set up our BBQ spot and hubby got to work.  I went for a short walk around the park.It was a good break from the desert heat.  Today we have monsoon clouds and it is like a sauna outside...:-(
