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.

My mountains were magical yesterday!




A snow storm was moving in yesterday morning and I drove up into our local mountains to take some photos and to smell the wet earth.  Ahhhhh....isn't that a lovely smell?  It wasn't snowing where I was taking these photos (it was misting), but further up the mountains, it was.  I can't wait to get out this morning and see all the new snow.!  :-)  Yes, I have ONE MORE week of vacation!

Nice photos! Going out to Joshua Tree this weekend, so will check out the peaks to see if they got a dusting of snow.
