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.

Just around the mountains
Sometimes I take a drive up in our local mountains, just to get out and see something different. On this day a storm front was moving in from the Pacific Ocean and clouds were clinging the mountains. There were still some fall leaves on the cottonwoods. It was a chilly day, but I didn't mind. It is so different up here in the mountains that our desert, which was warm and sunny.
