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.

Saturday morning ride
I took a ride up in our local mountains yesterday. It was a bright, crisp, clear, and cold autumn morning. I found several ranch houses that had frost on their roofs, including this one. The cottonwoods, aspen, and other trees up in the mountains are just starting to turn their fall colors. This past week has really been the first week up there that they've had cooler temperatures. We've had a LONG summer! So, I'm anxious to keep track of the autumn leaf-turning progress up there and I'll be driving around every weekend. I'm starting to get my energy back (I'm on week 9 of this CRUDDY bronchitis). I went to my doctor, got a different inhaler, and she put me on steroids (pills) for a week. They do seem to be drying out my mucus, but now I have a mostly dry cough...sigh...This stuff has been AWFUL!
