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.

Went for a walk yesterday morning
It's been nearly 4 months since I've gone for a morning walk at my favorite place. First, we had a LONG, hot, humid summer. Second, I've had this darn bronchitis/COPD thing, which I still have, 9 weeks later. But, yesterday, since I awoke at 4 a.m., I was out the door by 6:30, ready to walk. I saw several huge jackrabbits, but didn't see any coyotes. Somebody has been setting palm trees on fire at the resort, at two corners, and that bothers me. Animals live in and around these palms. The person hasn't been caught yet, but I am hoping somebody will come forward with info leading to the arrest of this person. It's sad to see burned palms. Fortunately, these palms are still thriving and this was the view yesterday morning.
