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.

"D" is for desert~ABC Wednesday~020613
"D" is for desert and these are two very different views from the same place, the Santa Rosa mountains visitor center. The center is located at the base of Highway 74, at 1,000 feet in elevation. The top view is from their patio, looking north toward Palm Desert. The bottom view is looking west, toward Cahuilla Hills. Two very different views indeed! If you have a chance, and you are in Palm Desert, be sure you stop at the visitors' center. They have hiking trails, videos, books, and shirts. There are rangers there to help you and they also offer guided hikes through the desert. They have many, many maps of the area, too. It's a great place to stop and visit!
