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.

More rain and thunderheads today
Today started out clear. Well, actually, there were a couple of high clouds, but by noon thunderheads had gathered and were blocking out the sun. Hubby spent most of the day sleeping and we FINALLY went out to grab some lunch about 1:30 p.m.!!! (I was HUNGRY!) We stopped at the little cafe at Silver Lake, which has excellent food, then headed up to the visitor center at Mono Lake. Unfortunately, it was raining so heavily that we ran to the car and headed back to our cabin. Not much of an outing today... :-( We saw lightning and heard loud thunder and spent the afternoon in our cabin, looking out at the storm. It is cold here tonight and the heater in our cabin isn't coming on (for some reason). I didn't pack appropriately (no warm jammies), so I'm bundled up in layers. It's hard to go from 114 degrees in the desert to 42 degrees in the Sierra Nevada.
