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.

Windmills and sunny skies
Well, sunny skies YESTERDAY. For the next few days, we have a winter storm bearing down on the valley and it will be raining or snowing up in our local mountains. It's still too dark to see outside, but I have a feeling I'll be running errands today and not getting out much. I got my flu shot yesterday and so far (...knock on wood...) I haven't had a reaction. I had a BAD reaction to my last flu shot, which was 35 years ago, before our daughter was born! However, I don't wish to get bronchitis (again) or pneumonia this flu season, so I opted for the shot....I'm crossing my fingers that it will keep me healthy and safe from the 20,000,000 germs my students will bring to class on Monday! :-( It was good to get out yesterday, while it was warm and sunny! (It was in the mid 70's here!). I always enjoy taking pics of the windmills near Palm Springs.
