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.

Minaret VIsta ~more thunderheads
Yesterday we drove up to Minaret Vista. It's over 9,000 feet and you look across the valley to the Minarets, one of Ansel Adam's favorite places to photograph. Unfortunately, we often arrive there in the afternoon (so you have to focus into the sun), but yesterday the entire area was full of thunderheads. Yes, we had lightning and thunder, even some HAIL down in Mammoth! Don't know what is in store for us today...
