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.

Local mountains

I left the house in the desert early Sunday morning to take a ride up to the horse ranch.  I had to buy pellets for the herd and I had to deliver 2 HUGE containers of psyllium for them, one from a friend.  It was a beautiful, crisp, clear morning.  It had rained just hours before and everything sparkled!  And, it was COLD!  A wind was blowing in from the ocean (this area is just east of the ocean) and another storm front was moving in.  Snow is forecast today down to 3,500 feet, so this area will be getting snow soon.

I love how the clouds are just suspended in the sky in the fourth shot! Wish we'd have a white Christmas here in Illinois!
