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.

More Joshua Tree snow




What is it about Joshua Tree that is so captivating?  Is it the rocks?  Is it the joshua trees?  Is it the pinyons nestled among the rocks?  Whatever it is, we LOVE to drive up there and now that hubby is 62 and has his national parks pass, we don't have to pay entrance fees.  The entry post was closed Monday anyway and there were quite a few cars in the park.  We don't often get to see snow on the rocks and joshua trees up there, so I'm glad we went.  Another storm is forecast to roll through the valley on Thursday, but I'm not sure snow is forecast for the park.  I know that the Anza area will be getting snow because I'll now have to cancel Friday's lesson with my horses.  They WILL be getting fresh snow, which is forecast to be down to 3,500 feet.  Oh, well...I can't wait for Friday morning!   :-)  Here are some pics from Monday's trip to Joshua Tree national park.
