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.

The END of summer? Please, please!!!


Teresa and I are both blogging about the end of summer (here's the link to her blog:   http://stvdp.blogspot.com/2012/09/end-of-summer-blues.html).  For us desert dwellers, this is IMPORTANT.  You have NO IDEA how many 100+ degree days we've had this summer.  Summer has just dragged ON and ON and ON.  And, we've had a LOT of humidity, which just saps one's strength and energy.  Plus, I currently have bronchitis and I'm so exhausted from the coughing that I can't think straight!  So, today will be 106 degrees, but then tomorrow, it's down, down, down into the mid 90's!  Whoo, whoo! That means we can turn the air conditioner OFF and open our doors and let the fresh air inside!  I can't wait!!!!We had clouds yesterday and today, but then "cooler" and drier days are forecast!

Yesterday might have been the first day of Fall, but we've had beautiful cool weather the past week. I'm not read for WINTER, per say, but after a hot summer, I truly am enjoying the cooler weather! I hope it cools off by you soon!
