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.

Back to the canyon
I still had two days of vacation left on Saturday, so that morning I once again headed back out to Thousand Palms Canyon. This day, my goal was to hike up the trail to Pushawalla Canyon. However, our daughter called and asked me to come help her with their yard sale (she IS 6 months pregnant!), so I abandoned my plans and returned to my car...SOMEDAY I'll hike that trail. There was a man ahead of me and 2 couples behind me, so I felt safe. I wouldn't hike that trail ALONE, especially since a mountain lion was spotted near that area a couple of years ago! But, it was such a beautiful morning, how could I resist?
